Brazil's external deficit to widen in 2017 -cenbank

BRASILIA, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Brazil's central bank expects the country's current account deficit to widen to $28 billion in 2017 from $22 billion this year, according to external data released on Tuesday.

Brazil's current account gap shrank in November from the previous month to $878 million, but was wider than the 200 million gap expected by the median of analysts in a Reuters poll.

The country also attracted $8.752 billion in foreign direct investment in November, above forecasts in a Reuters poll for an inflow of $6.5 billion. (Reporting by Marcela Ayres; Writing by Alonso Soto; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
