The country’s growth rate came down in 2008 to reach 5.1% due to tighter credit conditions and weaker demand for Brazilian exports. The global economic slowdown brought GDP growth down to -0.3% in 2009. However, the economy recovered strongly to grow at 7.53% in 2010. The growth in the middle class population is also fuelling increased demand for consumer goods. Growth of domestic consumption along with strong exports bodes well for the economy.
