Economists trimmed forecasts for Brazil‘s economic growth this year and next for the fifth straight week, a central bank survey showed on Monday.

The largest Latin American economy — and one of the fastest growing countries only two years ago — is now expected to expand just 1.00 percent this year, down from 1.03 percent seen in the prior week, according to the poll’s median forecasts.
