Brazil 2013 inflation view raised on weaker currency - survey

SAO PAULO, June 24 (Reuters) - Economists raised their
forecasts for Brazil's 2013 inflation and trimmed estimates for
economic growth this year and next, according to a weekly
central bank survey published on Monday.
    The survey of around 100 financial institutions also showed
economists expect a weaker exchange rate at the end of this year
and next. Brazil's currency, the real, has plunged in the
past few weeks to the lowest in four years.
