Brazilian industrial production increased 0.8% in April, marking a return to positive growth after dropping by 0.1% in March, the government announced on Tuesday. According to the report by Brazil's statistics bureau, IBGE, the industrial sector has grown 4.5% so far in 2018.
Brazil's industrial output rose in December at its fastest monthly pace in two and a half years, in a likely one-time boost that did not reverse the sharp losses of one of the worst years on record for local manufacturers.
Brazil’s industrial output posted its biggest monthly drop in over four years in August, damping optimism about the country’s prospects for recovering from its worst recession in generations. Industrial production declined 3.8% in August from July in seasonally adjusted terms, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, IBGE, said on Tuesday.
Brazil’s industrial output shrank more than expected in February, reversing most of the previous month’s gains and casting fresh doubt over the health of an anaemic recovery in the struggling sector.
Industrial production in Brazil expanded in August at its fastest pace in 15 months thanks to heavy government stimulus, data showed on Tuesday. Finance Minister Guido Mantega said the jump in industrial output is proof that the worst of Brazil's slowdown is over.
Brazilian industrial production rose a stronger-than-expected 0.3% in July from June, government statistics agency IBGE said on Tuesday. July was the second positive number following three straight months of declining output.
