Brazil Economic Overview

In the third quarter of 2019, Brazil’s economy expanded at its fastest pace since the start of 2018, as it appears to be leaving behind years of sluggish growth that followed the country’s worst recession on record. Consumer spending and business investment increased in the third quarter last year as a combination of slow inflation, low borrowing costs and the economic policies of President Jair Bolsonaro put more money in shoppers’ pockets and encouraged companies to raise money to finance future expansion.


Brazil’s gross domestic product rose 0.6% in the three months through September from the second quarter and 1.2% from a year earlier, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, or IBGE, reported in the fourth quarter.


More about Brazil’s economy: Brazil is a developing free-market economy – the largest economy in Latin America and 9th largest in the world. From 2000-2012 Brazil was one of the fastest growing economies in the world and was the “B” in BRIC when economists discussed the world’s fastest growing economies (Russia, India and China were the others). Services account for approximately 76% of its GDP, while industry (18.5%) and agriculture (5.5%) are the other main drivers of its economy. The country entered into a recession in 2014 which carried through all of 2015 and 2016, when its GDP was negative (-3.3%) for the latter year.


The office is located at:

NAI Brazil

Rua Funchal, 411 – 5th floor

Vila Olimpia, Sao Paulo – SP Brazil,

CEP:  04551-060
