Brazil meets 2016 central gov't deficit target

BRASILIA, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Brazil’s central government registered a primary budget deficit of 154.255 billion reais ($49.40 billion) in 2016, meeting its target but recording a third consecutive annual deficit that reflects the dire state of the country’s finances.

In December, the country posted a primary deficit of 60.124 billion reais ($19.25 billion).

The central government - which includes federal ministries, social security and the central bank - had been expected to post a deficit of 71.9 billion reais, according to the median forecast in a Reuters poll of 18 economists. In November, the central government recorded a deficit of 38.35 billion reais.
