Doing business in Brazil

This 2014 guide has been prepared for the assistance of businesses interested in investing in Brazil.

Brazil is on the list of top strategic markets for most, if not all, worldwide corporations. Indeed, the country strives to develop its infrasctructure through road investments; and allocate more revenue to education, one of its critical national issue. The Brazilian middle class is still growing and is made up of avid consumers. Many of Brazil’s industries and services are still fragmented and in an earlier organizational stage than many of the world’s more advanced economies, which presents significant leverage opportunities. Last but not least, Brazil is benefiting from unprecedented media attention as the organizer and host of various mainstream world sporting events.

This past year has shown that the challenges of South America’s largest economy will not be solved in a just few months. However, government and private sector actions still demonstrate strong confidence in the future of the Brazilian economy and the opportunities it represents for potential investors.
