SAO PAULO, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Economists raised their
forecasts for Brazil's 2013 economic growth and inflation, a
weekly central bank survey showed on Monday. 
    Economists also raised their estimates for the end-2014
benchmark interest rate to 9.75 percent from 9.50 percent in the
prior week's survey.
    The estimates were revised after data showed
stronger-than-expected economic growth in the second quarter.
 
    The poll provides the median forecasts of economists at
about 100 financial institutions.
