Brazil Expects Agriculture to Grow 5.5%, More than Country’s GDP

Farm field in Brazil The agricultural sector in Brazil should grow 5.5% this year. This forecast was disclosed by the Brazilian Central Bank (BC) and is part of the Quarterly Inflation Report, which includes several estimates about the economy of the country.

The Central Bank has also increased the forecasted industrial growth from 5.3% to 5.5% and growth of the service sector from 4.4% to 4.5%.
