Brazil’s Rousseff to Keep Top Economic Advisers, Spokesman Says

Follow us on:

June 25 (Bloomberg) -- Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff won’t dismiss Finance Minister Guido Mantega and other top economic advisers after three weeks of protests for better services and less corruption, her spokesman said.

“Mantega has the trust of the president and will remain in office,” spokesman Thomas Traumann said in an interview today. “The president will maintain her main economic advisers.”

Valor Economico newspaper reported today that Rousseff could appoint central bank President Alexandre Tombini as finance minister, without citing where it got the information. Former central bank chief Henrique Meirelles would replace Tombini, Sao Paulo-based Valor said.

Latin America’s biggest economy has expanded below market expectations for five consecutive months and grew 0.9 percent last year.
