Brazil Finance Minister Guido Mantega said Tuesday that inflation control is a priority and so despite a slowdown in inflation the government won’t be complacent in monitoring prices.
“Inflation control is a priority . . . so we will never relax with inflation control,” Mr. Mantega said during a presentation to investors in New York.
“Inflation is slowing down but we will not be lax,” he said, citing the IPC consumer price index, which slowed yet again during the third week of February.
