Brazil's economic outlook is improving

  

BRASILIA- Brazil's government is set to announce the privatization of three or four large companies within the next 30-60 days, Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said on Thursday, adding that the sales have the blessing of President Jair Bolsonaro.

Speaking in a live event hosted by Fundaci?n Internacional para la Libertad, Guedes also said Brazil's economic outlook is improving, and that the fall in gross domestic product this year will be just over 4%, far less than some had feared earlier this year.
