BRASILIA (Reuters) - Finance Minister Guido Mantega told Reuters on Thursday that Fitch's decision to maintain Brazil's debt outlook at stable was "fair" given the country's healthy finances.
The market had widely expected Fitch to lower Brazil's debt outlook to negative, following its peer Standard & Poor's which downgraded the South American nation's outlook last month.
