The presentation aims to offer a macroeconomic landscape of Brazil in the short and long term, considering the 2018 elections and the structural bottlenecks that the country needs to address in order to pursue a sustainable economic growth onwards;
Alas Brazil has somehow found the path of a timid economic growth in the short term, the external macroeconomic scenario led by the protectionist wave of Donald Trump and the rebalancing of China’s economic growth model still may affect our domestic economy, mainly the demand for some commodities and goods such as soybeans, animal proteins and pulp and paper byproducts. Nonetheless, given the long term daunting scenario, the participant will be able to correct address the opportunities and the threats the Brazilian economy may impose onwards in its business and financial plans, by accurately addressing the economic and political momentum of Brazil, China, US and countries from the Euro Zone.
