Brazil will prioritize pension overhaul over tax reform - Oliveira

BRASILIA, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Brazil’s government will seek to approve its pension reform proposal in Congress before discussing changes in the tax system, Planning Minister Dyogo Oliveira said on Monday at an event in São Paulo.

Oliveira said he is not very confident about the political viability of a broad tax reform. He also said Brazil’s economic recovery from a deep recession will be slow, with output probably taking 10 to 12 years to return to 2014 levels. (Reporting by Thaís Freitas; Writing by Silvio Cascione)
