Barriers to Growth in Brazil

Survey question: What is Brazil’s biggest obstacle to returning to higher growth?

While the order in which survey respondents ranked the major barriers to a return to growth in Brazil was unchanged year-on-year, there was a marked increase in the number of respondents that cited ‘poor governance’ as the most significant factor. At 46.0%, nearly half of those surveyed pointed to the lack of ability amongst key state institutions at state and central levels to properly govern in Brazil, an increase of 11.3pp compared with last year. There is a clear suggestion too, with the year-onyear increase, that no short-term solution is expected, although the reduction of respondents citing ‘excessive government debt’ as a barrier does perhaps show an indication that the new administration of Michel Temer may have eased some concerns.​​
