Trade imbalances of Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey and South Africa have started to moderate since June 2013, says Capital Economics

 

Capital Economics stated that there are signs that the trade imbalances of Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey and South Africa have started to moderate since June last year.

London-based independent macroeconomic research company noted, “There are signs that the trade imbalances of the ‘fragile five’ emerging markets which are Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey and South Africa have started to moderate. On a three-month basis, the combined trade deficit of these five countries has narrowed by almost 40 percent since June 2013.”

Moreover, the company said that the trade balances of the “fragile five” emerging markets started to improve as this mainly came about from a fall in imports, rather than a rise in exports.

In addition, it was predicted that global GDP growth would gradually pick up in this year and next, which is likely to lead to faster growth in emerging markets exports. “Over a longer horizon, strengthening demand from the US and Europe should support emerging market exports” it added.
