Brazilian President-elect Dilma Rousseff spoke with her U.S. counterpart Barack Obama today to discuss Brazil’s foreign policy and energy cooperation between the two countries, Rousseff’s foreign policy adviser Marco Aurelio Garcia told reporters in Brasilia today.

Brazil’s next leader also spoke with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, and met with allies including former Finance Minister Antonio Palocci to discuss her transition to power, Garcia said.

Rousseff won 56 percent of the vote yesterday compared with 44 percent for Jose Serra, the former governor of Sao Paulo state.

The yield on the January 2014 interest-futures contract fell 11 basis points, or 0.11 percentage point, to 11.560 percent at 3:56 p.m. New York time, after Rousseff pledged to maintain a lid on spending in her victory speech last night.
