Trade Balance in Brazil

Brazil Trade Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Brazil - Trade Balance

Growth picked up somewhat in Q1 according to recent data, underpinned by a strong positive contribution from the external sector, as exports of goods and services rose sharply. In contrast, private consumption growth was unchanged from Q4, while government consumption growth slowed and fixed investment contracted at the fastest pace since Q2 2021. Investment was likely restrained by higher interest rates and inflation, and political uncertainty ahead of the October general elections. Turning to Q2, available data suggests the economy continues to expand amid fiscal support and as the impact of the pandemic fades, with the manufacturing and services PMIs averaging higher in April–May relative to Q1, and the unemployment rate falling to a fresh multi-year low in April. That said, tighter monetary conditions and double-digit inflation will likely be weighing on activity somewhat.
