Brazil

After two years of stagnation in GDP, and as the exchange-rate turbulence of 1999 faded into the past, the Brazilian economy recovered in 2000, with GDP growing by 4.5% while the unemployment rate fell and inflation declined slightly to just over 5%. The balance-of-payments current-account deficit shrank, while international reserves climbed as the result of a substantial net inflow of capital, especially in the form of direct investment.
