Brazil's economy may have flatlined in Q2 - central bank chief

BRASILIA, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Brazil's economy flatlined or expanded slightly in the second quarter but the pace of growth should pick up, albeit gradually, central bank president Roberto Campos Neto said on Tuesday.

Campos Neto also said that a benign outlook for inflation should allow the central bank to provide additional policy stimulus, according to a presentation to the Senate's economic committee posted on the central bank's website.
