GDP growth rate projections are based largely on SSPs projections (Dellink et al 2015), with adjustments made for the short-term to reflect current economic activity in Brazil. Short-term projections through 2020 are based on The Focus Bulletin published by the Brazilian Central Bank (BCB 2017). The GDP projection of the Reference scenario in BLUES is shown in the figure below.
