Brazilian industrial output was down 2% in July from June this year. The information was released this Tuesday in the Monthly Industrial Survey by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics IBGE.

Uruguay’s inflation in August kept climbing and reached 1.04%, totalling 6.74% in the first eight months of the year and 8.86% in the last twelve months, which is well above the Central bank target of 4% to 6%, according to the latest report from the local Statistics Office, INE.
