Rousseff heralds Brazil's "age of prosperity"


13:42, January 03, 2012

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff proclaimed Monday her country is about to enter an "age of prosperity" based on social policy overhaul launched during 2011.

"We are managing to turn a moment of crisis into an opportunity and entering a new era of prosperity," she said in her first weekly radio show of the new year.

"We are succeeding in protecting our economy, productive sectors, and above all, Brazilians' jobs," she added.

Last year turned out to be a good one for Brazil despite a turbulent world economy marred by Eurozone crisis and U.S. economic woes, she said.

Brazil will see further growth in 2012, bolstered by tax cuts and relaxation of credit for the country's five million small enterprises, said Rousseff.
