* Brazil’s national statistics institute (Ibge) has released the latest data on the country’s services sector, which show that the volume of services shrank 0.1% in January, compared with December 2021.

In year-on-year terms, services grew 9.5% in January, and the sector remains 7% above pre-coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic levels (February 2020).
