Brasilia, Brazil, 18 Dec – The chairman of Brazil’s Central Bank, Henrique Meirelles, re-stated Thursday that Brazil’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was expected to post growth of over 5 percent in 2010.

Meirelles gave assurances that growth of the Brazilian economy would occur with inflation under control, noting that projections from financial market analysts pointed to inflation for 2010 below the upper target of 6.5 percent.

The chairman of the Central Bank told radio station Radio Nacional that Brazil was now considered to be “the country that came out strongest from the international crisis,” and is seen by investors as “one of the countries with the greatest future prospects.” (macauhub)
