Brazil Transactions Insights – Fall 2020

Despite the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic (with an expected GDP contraction of 4.5% in 2020) and a certain level of uncertainty in the political arena, the Brazilian economy is showing signs of a strong recovery in Q3 2020, driven by internal demand and fast-maturing capital markets.

The federal government remains committed to a series of important structural reforms, including the simplification of the over-complex domestic tax environment and the administrative reform, aimed to reduce public spending. The privatization program remains one of the main priorities in the government’s agenda for the coming months, pointing to relevant opportunities for long-term investments in infrastructure and the foundation of the country sustained growth.
