Itaú has downgraded growth expectations for the Brazilian economy in 2021 and 2022. For this year, he reduced the GDP expansion projection from 5.8% to 5.7%, reflecting, in part, the scarcity of supply from the automotive industry, affected by the electronic chip crisis.

For next year, there was a decrease from 2.0% to 1.5%, in line with other Latin American countries, reflecting “the decrease in fiscal and monetary stimuli, the less favorable external environment (with lower commodity prices, slower global growth and a withdrawal of monetary stimulus in the United States), the dissipation of benefits from the economic reopening, and fiscal and political uncertainties.
