Brazil Treasury Gets Half a Billion Dollars in the US and Europe

Goldbars Information from the Brazilian Treasury reveals that apart from the US$ 500 million in bills issued on the European and North American markets, another US$ 25 million were traded on the Asian market.

Wednesday, July 29, the Treasury started selling Brazilian Treasury Bills, the Global 2037, once again. They mature on January 20, 2037.
