Brazil posts primary budget deficit of 12.8 bln reais in July

BRASILIA, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Brazil posted a primary budget deficit of 12.816 billion reais ($3.97 billion) in July, central bank data showed on Wednesday, a much smaller shortfall than expected by the market.

The monthly deficit is the sixth so far this year in a testament to the challenges the government faces to meet its fiscal goal. The market had expected a deficit of 20 billion reais for July.
