BRASILIA, June 24 (Reuters) - Brazilian policymakers need to "persevere" in their current fiscal and monetary policies to lower inflation, central bank director Luiz Awazu Pereira said on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, the bank slightly cut its 2016 inflation forecast in a sign that it will continue to raise interest rates to anchor inflation expectations.
