Brazil’s economic activity slowed less than expected in July

Brazil’s recovery slowed less than expected in July according to the central bank’s main gauge of activity, as Latin America’s economy grapples with above-target inflation and political tensions.

The central bank’s economic activity index, a proxy for gross domestic product, rose 0.60% on the month in July, more than the 0.35% median estimate in a Bloomberg survey, the bank reported on Wednesday. June’s reading was revised to 0.92% from 1.14%. On the year, activity rose 5.53%.

Vaccinations against Covid-19 are gaining pace in Brazil, with some states now immunizing teenagers as part of broad campaigns that are allowing businesses to reopen. Analysts forecast a stronger pace of growth for the remainder of the year. Still, policy makers remain concerned over headwinds including above-target inflation, weak consumer confidence and a slow labor market recovery.

In that context, analysts surveyed by the central bank lowered their 2021 GDP projection for five straight weeks, to 5.04%
