Brazil govt may revise 2020 GDP forecast of -4.7% -Economy Ministry official

BRASILIA, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Brazil's government may revise its official 2020 economic growth forecast of -4.7%, an Economy Ministry official said on Friday, adding that the economy is in a strong "V-shaped" recovery from the worst of the COVID-19 crisis earlier this year.

In an online presentation, special secretary Waldery Rodrigues also said the treasury is considering taking a $1 billion loan from the World Bank, and said emergency welfare payments and spending will not be extended into next year.
