RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazil's economy has not reversed its growth trajectory despite central bank data showing a surprising drop in economic activity in May, Finance Minister Henrique Meirelles said on Friday.

Meirelles said the government will maintain its economic growth forecast for this year. The Finance Ministry has been estimating an expansion of 0.5 percent in 2017.
