Brazil reforms pensions ‘to boost economy’

Al Jazeera 2 weeks ago

Brazil's politicians have voted to raise the retirement age by nine years in a bid to boost a sluggish economy.

Politicians from across the divide agreed to finally overhaul the pension system after years of trying to do so.

The decision is expected to save the state almost $200bn over 10 years.

Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports.
