Brazil - Inflation

Inflation inches up in April, but stays below Central Bank’s target

Consumer prices in April rose 0.22% over the previous month, above March’s 0.09% rise. April’s reading was below analysts’ forecasts of a sharper 0.28% rise. The acceleration was largely driven by rising prices for health and personal care items, specifically higher medicine prices.

Inflation ticked up in April, coming in at 2.8% (March: 2.7%). Prices pressures remain at a historic low in the country and below the Central Bank’s target of 4.5% plus or minus 1.5 percentage points. Annual average inflation fell to 2.8% in April, the lowest rate in over a decade, from 2.9% in March.
