Brazil's Meirelles says Q2 GDP points to strengthening growth

SAO PAULO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - A second consecutive quarter of economic growth confirms that Brazil is exiting its worst recession ever and points to a strengthening recovery, Finance Minister Henrique Meirelles said on Friday.

Brazil’s gross domestic product increased 0.2 percent in the second quarter from the prior three months, slightly above market expectations. In a statement, Meirelles said the government growth going into 2018 will be “strong and constant.” (Reporting by Bruno Federowski; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
