Why doing business in Brazil?
With a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of US$ 2,223 trillion in 2012, Brazil is the world's 7th wealthiest economy. It is also the largest country in area and population in Latin America and the Caribbean, with nearly 200.000 million people. The country will host the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016, demanding massive investments in areas such as urban and social development and transport infrastructure. The Growth Acceleration Plan (PAC in Portuguese) was launched to increase investment in infrastructure and provide tax incentives for faster and more robust economic growth. Brazil's strong domestic market is less vulnerable to external crisis, and Brazilians are benefiting from stable economic growth, relatively low inflation rates and improvements in social well-being. International companies target several segments of the Brazilian economy, particularly tourism, oil and gas, biotechnology and electronic components.
Brazil has well-developed industries in sectors of agricultural, mining, manufacturing and service. The main industries are textiles, automobiles, ships, airplanes, food and chemistry. It is the world's biggest producer of sugar cane and coffee, and also a net exporter of soya beans, cocoa and orange juice. Brazil is also one of the leading hydroelectric power producers of the world. Brazil is considered to be the best emerging country for the retail industry, with an ample and growing consumer market. Brazilians have a strong preference for international brands, which they regard as higher quality and more impressive or exotic than domestic ones.
