According to the document, the highlight of growth goes to the agricultural sector, which should increase by 7.5% next year.

“The prospect of a rise in agriculture, a less cyclical sector, reflects favorable forecasts for the 2022/2023 grain crop, especially for soybean crops – after a partial break in the 2021/2022 crop – and corn, with an expected increase of planted area and productivity.

For exports of goods and services, the projection is for growth of 3% for next year. According to the institution, despite the projection of a slowdown in the global economy, exports should be driven by basic products.

Already the forecast of imports is high of 0.5%. The growth reflects the expectation of a deceleration in household consumption, for example. According to the report, for 2023, household consumption should increase by 0.7%.
