Macroeconomic Analysis Seminar debates second COVID-19 wave and Brazil’s challenges in 2021
The year 2021 began with hopes regarding vaccination and doubts about a new wave of COVID-19. The consensus view among experts is that it is crucial to solve the health problem for us to see an economic recovery, as it will allow the full functioning of sectors such as services, which have been greatly affected by the pandemic. This is the context of this year’s first FGV IBRE Macroeconomic Analysis Seminar, to be held in partnership with the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo on March 8, starting at 10 am. The virtual event, to be broadcast on FGV’s YouTube channel, will also commemorate FGV IBRE’s 70th anniversary.
FGV specialists will present their projections for macroeconomic indicators and outline prospects for the Brazilian economy amid so many challenges. Vaccination has begun across the country but the pace is still uncertain, due to the need to purchase more vaccines and production inputs, and this will affect the speed of recovery.
The speakers will be Armando Castelar, FGV IBRE’s applied economics coordinator; Silvia Matos, the coordinator of IBRE’s Macro Bulletin; and José Júlio Senna, the head of FGV IBRE’s Monetary Studies Center. The moderator will be O Estado de S. Paulo columnist Adriana Fernandes.
The meeting is aimed at economists, students, market players and anyone else interested in the topic. To sign up, click here.
