RECOVERY SCENARIOS: TIME TO ACT MORE THAN REACT
Francisco Z. Rácz & Washington T. Yamaga - R Y Associates for Paint & Pintura October 2020
We left an apparent short-term survival scenario, with time set aside for a long-term survival scenario with many undefined variables. The first wave of recovery for paints, in several segments, was above expectations for several regions of Brazil, but the year will still close below the plan.
Macro economic variables such as the exchange rate, financial costs and others indicate different times. Future growth still depends structurally on investments in the economy and the effective reduction of unemployment. However, new facts such as a new wave of "hiccups" may continue impacting progression.
