Imports Outpacing Exports in Brazil 22% to 18%

Brazilian exports added up to US$ 2.56 billion last week, with a drop in 3.75% in relation to the previous week and imports reached US$ 1.69 billion, also with a reduction in 3.25% in the same comparison base. The surplus was of US$ 864 million.

With this, the accumulated surplus in the 18 working days of March, up to now, increases to US$ 3.016 billion, which already adds up to the best monthly surplus in 2006, since the surpluses in January and February were of around US$ 2.8 billion.

As there are still five working days of international trade to account, the surplus this month should be higher also than that in March last year, which registered US$ 3.34 billion.

In the year’s accumulated value, the trade surplus adds up to US$ 8.68 billion, against US$ 7.98 billion in the same period in 2005, with an increase in 8.73% in the quarter, result of total exports worth US$ 27.11 billion and imports worth US$ 18.43 billion.

It is worth mentioning, however, that this increase has been dropping, gradually, due to increase in exports of only 17.63% while imports grew by 22.34%.
