Economic recovery challenges to be debated in online seminar

The event is being organized by Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian Institute of Economics (FGV IBRE), which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, in partnership with the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo.

The world is going through a new phase, less frightening than the one at the height of the pandemic, but less promising than that in the first half of this year. How will this context affect Brazil’s economic recovery, as inflation accelerates and fiscal uncertainties remain? This and other matters will be discussed at the “Third Macroeconomic Analysis Seminar – Challenges for Economic Recovery,” to be held on September 9, at 10 am, on FGV’s YouTube channel. The event is being organized by Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian Institute of Economics (FGV IBRE), which is celebrating its 70thanniversary this year, in partnership with the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo.

In general, the international environment is still favorable for emerging markets, but less than it was in the first six months of the year, due to a significant increase in macroeconomic volatility and uncertainty. Following the robust recovery of economic activity in developed countries in the first half of the year, it is expected that the pace of growth will slow down in the second half.

This topic will be debated by three FGV IBRE researchers: Silvia Matos, the coordinator of IBRE’s Macro Bulletin; associate researcher Armando Castelar; and José Júlio Senna, the head of IBRE’s Center for Monetary Studies. The moderator will be Adriana Fernandes, O Estado de S. Paulo special reporter and columnist.

The seminar is aimed at companies in different sectors, professionals, students and other people interested in the subject.
