RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Brazil is expected to help push down Latin American growth, according to projections for this year and the next two years made by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
While the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth scenario projected for the average of Latin America and the Caribbean is 3.2% between 2021 and 2023, Brazil should grow 2.7% in the period.
When excluding the Brazilians from the list of the so-called Southern Cone countries (which includes Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay), the expectation is for GDP growth of 3.5%.
