Industrial production fell 1.1% in 2019

After two years of expansion, Brazilian industrial production fell 1.1% in 2019, compared to the previous year, according to data from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE). The extractive industry was the one with the greatest negative influence on the results for 2019, decreasing 9.7%, pressured by the lower production of iron ore after the Brumadinho tragedy.
