Brazil's central bank chief vows to provide liquidity 'as long as needed'

SAO PAULO, June 7 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Central Bank and Treasury will provide liquidity to the currency and interest rate markets “as long as needed”, Central Bank Governor Ilan Goldfajn said on Thursday, following a steep slide in the real currency. Goldfajn told a news conference the central bank would offer up to $20 billion in currency swaps through the end of next week and did not rule out using Brazil’s foreign reserves to intervene in the currency spot market.
