Subject

Prospects for Brazil in 2016.

Significance

Brazil will enter 2016 amid severe recession and profound political crisis. Unpopular President Dilma Rousseff will continue to struggle in her relationship with Congress, including her own coalition. Her government will focus its efforts on avoiding an impeachment or abrogation of her mandate, as well as implementing an austerity programme. Despite the political, fiscal and economic crises, Brazil will try to convey a positive image during the Rio de Janeiro August 2016 Olympics, in which security will be the main concern.
