In the past years, Brazil has consolidated its position as a strong and attractive global player with a high degree of economic diversification and is currently the seventh largest economy in the world.
The economic development of the past years resulted in an expanded mass consumer market and increased social equality, an environment of institutional stability and increased social cohesion. Nearly 40 million Brazilians experienced significant improvements in their life conditions. In addition, Brazil has a large and fast growing consumer market, comprising 205 million people (IBGE).
Should i Invest in Brazil?
Brazil is the 6th largest consumer market in the world and the perspective is that by 2023 it will be the 5th. The growth model is based on population growth (currently there are 202 million inhabitants) and increased consumption of families, due to social gains.

The increase of purchasing power and the investment opportunities in sectors like oil and natural gas, generation and transmission of electrical power, real estate and agribusiness places Brazil as an attractive choice on investment. The country is currently the sixth biggest FDI recipient in the world (UNCTAD).
