New Brazilian finance minister pledges to restore economy

Brazil once had one of the world's fastest growing economies. However, it slipped into recession this year.

On Thursday, Joaquim Levy - an ex banker - was named as the new finance minister.

He has vowed to cut spending and clean up the country's finances to try and rebuild the trust of investors.
