Summary:

A strong policy framework and improved income distribution and social outcomes have been important accomplishments in Brazil. The 2012 Article IV Consultation highlights that financial stability in Brazil has been underpinned by a strong banking system and framework for regulation and supervision. Executive Directors have commended authorities’ commitment to a strong policy framework, which has delivered a decade of macroeconomic stability and rising living standards. They have also welcomed the recent reorientation of the policy mix toward generating fiscal savings and providing monetary countercyclical support.
