The 13th Brazil Issuers & Investors Forum
April 16, 2015 | Sao Paulo, Brazil
2015 was an important year for Brazil. In the rear-view: the 2014 World Cup and Presidential Election, the Fed’s QE program, and record commodity prices. Ahead: higher borrowing costs, above target inflation, a weakening Real, lagging investor confidence, sliding oil prices, and an infrastructure deficit that must be solved for the economy to fulfill its potential.
