De novo, redução do IPI vira medida cíclica. “Sem precedentes”, aham. A verdadeira notícia é a do outro parágrafo, a redução de juros no BNDES para máquinas e equipamentos industriais. É daí que pode sair alguma coisa.
Guido Mantega, the country’s finance minister, announced late on Monday a reduction in the IPI industrial tax on vehicles and IOF tax for individual borrowers, as well as easier terms for car financing.
BNDES, Brazil’s state development bank, also agreed to lower interest rates for some machinery and industrial equipment.
“It’s an unprecedented initiative that will benefit both consumers and investors,” Mr Mantega said. “The (measures) are the result of a commitment made by the government, the industrial sector and the financial sector … to reduce the cost of products and facilitate the financing of products,” he said.
