Brazil - Imports

Incoming data for 2019 has been mixed thus far, following a tepid end to last year. A high unemployment rate, which crept up in the October to January period, continues to plague household spending, while consumer confidence dropped to a six-month low in March. On a brighter note, industrial production grew solidly in February, despite plunging iron ore output following the Vale dam disaster. On 20 March, the government presented details on changes to military pensions, a precondition for Congress to start debating the critical social security bill. However, the proposal underwhelmed expectations as changes to the military career path translated into a higher bill for wages, denting some savings from the reform. Meanwhile, the rocky political scene of recent weeks has spooked the Brazilian stock market. Reports of bickering between President Jair Bolsonaro and House Speaker Rodrigo Maia bode poorly for the smooth passage of legislation, while the arrest of former President Michel Temer could keep politics in the spotlight.
