SAO PAULO, March 25 (Reuters) - The ability of Brazil's government to pass reforms to spur growth and break up structural bottlenecks will be widely watched after the October presidential election, a senior analyst at Standard & Poor's said on Tuesday.

The country needs to stimulate growth and investment, as well as prepare for the future through reforms, said Sebastian Briozzo, part of S&P's Brazil analysis team, at an event in Sao Paulo. (Reporting by Guillermo Parra-Bernal; Editing by James Dalgleish)
