Why Brazil ?
Investors and consumers throughout the world are getting to know Brazil.
This vast country also offers various opportunities for business. Recent
structural, economic and political reformshave cast Brazil in a new role on
the international stage.
As it travels down the path of growth and sustainability, Brazil has gained
the credibility that makesit an obligatory component in the portfolio of
major investors. Today, anyone considering great business opportunities
will include Brazil. The dynamics of the Brazilian economy are impressive
to moredemanding investors and consumers. Exports have doubled in the
last four years, and imports have increased in a similar pace.
This demonstrates that there is a degree of balance in Brazil’s strategy. While
aggressively approaching the international market, Brazil also exposes its own
products to foreign competition on the internal market, without protectionist or
bureaucratic impositions. This new perception of Brazil is attributable in part to
the high quality of Brazilian products: creative, modern and functional, they stand
out for the factors such as the materials used and the originality of the product
design, as well as their quality and technological standards. Just to give some
examples of that environment of free trade and competition it can be mentioned
the extensive flow of imports and exports products in the same industrial sectors
such as automobile, electronics and ITC.
As part of that process transnational enterprises heavily invested in Brazilian
identified opportunities. Since 1998, foreign direct investments flow has grown.
In 2007 foreign direct investments reached US$35 billion. In 2008, the FDI has
overtaken US$25 billion until August.
Brazil is a country whose culture is founded on empathy, joy and acceptance,
and Brazilian products express these same values. Our products are an extension
of our national culture. In addition to economic factors, political and social aspects
also contribute to the maturity and credibility of Brazil. The country is free of geographic,
racial and politics conflicts. Besides Portuguese and Africans, Brazil has welcomed huge
inward flow of immigrants from all over the world: Spanish, Italians, Germans,
Japanese and Chinese were integrated into Brazilian society.
