Public Debt in Brazil

Brazil - Public Debt

A stream of downbeat data on the Brazilian economy has rolled in, suggesting that the recovery is weak. Retail sales decelerated and unemployment rose in the first quarter, boding poorly for private consumption in the period. Moreover, recent figures for the industrial sector have also been soft, with industrial production dropping in March, and the manufacturing PMI falling in April. In addition, both business and consumer sentiment dropped in April. To raise much-needed funding, the government is pushing ahead with the privatization of state utility Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA, more commonly known as Eletrobras, Latin America’s largest power company. On 9 May, a congressional commission voted in favor of a bill allowing the privatization, despite public opposition. Additional votes in the lower house and senate still need to be held to approve the privatization, which if implemented could boost the government’s efforts to meet fiscal targets.
