The country’s inflation rate slowed in February for a second straight month, reinforcing bets the central bank won't need to boost interest rates in the months ahead to meet its target for consumer-price increases.

  • Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega denied March 11 that the government is preparing a series of measures aimed at preventing the local currency from strengthening further.

  • According to Brazil’s Economy Minister Guido Mantega, the country has entered a period of sustainable economic growth above 5 percent.
