Abstract:

< ALACRA META ABSTRACT>BMI View: The recent corruption scandals at a time of economic contraction have severely hampered economic prospects in Brazil. We are now expecting a - contraction in terms of real GDP in ----, following a contraction of -.- in ----. ...High output levels from the mining and agricultural industries will sustain freight tonnage levels during slow economic expansion over the medium term with road and rail modes the main accommodators of industrial production. Lower but continued demand growth in China, a major destination for Brazilian exports, will support the shipping industry which can take advantage of the Panama Canal and access lucrative Asian markets. Important trade partners Argentina and the US are also anticipated to achieve positive economic growth over the medium term, averaging -.- and -.- respectively, boosting international trade and shipping and freight modes. ...Lower but continued demand growth in China, a major destination for Brazilian exports, will support the shipping industry which can take advantage of the Panama Canal and access lucrative Asian markets.

...BMI View: The ongoing macroeconomic crisis fuelled by a deep political and corruption scandal echoing in the highest echelons of Brazilian policy circles has plagued national economic growth, investor confidence and exacerbated negatively an already volatile situation. The economy will continue to face very strong economic headwinds in ----, driven by a contraction in fixed investments and private consumption levels. ...
