The tertiary sector represents almost two-thirds of the GDP.
  6. 6. Brazil is one of the top ten world economic powers. Brazil’s cautious taxation and monetary policies, together with the necessarymicroeconomic reforms, have given the Brazilian economy solid basis allowing it towithstand the global economic crisis. A slight recession in 2009 (-0.2%), the Brazilian economy returned to robust growth in2010, driven by the resumption of international trade and supported by the governmentsstimulus measures.
