Brazil´s robust financial systems and mature capital markets, its democratic government, as well as the opportunity to host
major sport events (the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games) help us to explain why Brazil is one of the most
attractive locations for investments. In the last three years, Brazil has been placed among the Top 5 destinations for foreign
direct investments (FDI). In 2013, the country received US$ 64 billion in foreign direct investment (FDI), the fifth largest FDI
recipient in the world.
The Brazilian economy is the world's seventh largest by nominal GDP and
the seventh largest by purchasing power parity, as of 2012. The Brazilian
economy has been predicted to become one of the five largest in the world
in the decades to come, the GDP per capita following and growing, provided
that large investments in productivity gains are made to substitute the GDP
growth of the last decade that is attributable to the increase in the number
of people working.
Brazil’s economy is the largest of the Latin American nations and the second
largest in the western hemisphere. According to the World Economic Forum, Brazil was the top country
in upward evolution of competitiveness in 2009, gaining eight positions among
other countries, overcoming Russia for the first time, and partially closing
the competitiveness gap with India and China among the BRIC economies. Important
steps taken since the 1990s toward fiscal sustainability, as well as measures
taken to liberalize and open the economy, have significantly boosted the country’s
competitiveness fundamentals, providing a better environment for private-sector
In 2012 Forbes ranked Brazil as having the 5th largest number of billionaires in
the world, a number much larger than what is found in other Latin American countries,
and even ahead of United Kingdom and Japan. Brazil is a member of diverse economic
organizations, such as Mercosur, Unasul, G8+5, G20, WTO, and the Cairns Group.
"According to a search of Global Entrepreneurship Monitor in 2011 Brazil had 27 million
adults aged between 18 and 64 either starting or owning a business, meaning that more
than one in four Brazilian adults were entrepreneurs. In comparison to the other 54
countries studied, Brazil was the third-highest in absolute number of entrepreneurs.
Ipea, a government agency, found that 37 million jobs in Brazil were associated with
businesses with up to 10 employees.
In the last few years, Brazil has emerged as a stronger and more attractive global
player. A high degree of economic diversification, combined with a strong domestic
consumer market and a broad selection of trading partners, bolstered by a well
regulated financial system, have been keys to successfully mitigating the effects
of the international economic crisis. Unemployment in Brazil is low, wages are
rising and the level of foreign direct investment is high. There are plenty of
opportunities, particularly in agribusiness, oil and gas, mining, retail, capital
projects and infrastructure, and in catering to a growing demand for education

An important note, Brazil becomes the first country in Latin America to emerge
out of recession. The economy is among the "the quickest to bounce back".

market. Customers are more likely to buy from you if you speak their language.
