      • The country has been a Republic country since 1889.

      • Street crime is prevalent throughout Brazil’s major urban centers.
      • Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo have particularly high crime rates.
      • The tri-border region between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay has long been a hotbed of criminal activity.

      • Brazil enjoys an advantageous climate that is primarily free from major natural disasters, and enjoys a temperate climate that extends the growing season beyond that of many other countries.
      • With this abundance of natural resources, Brazilians are manufacturing everything from aircrafts to hair pins.
      • The Young and Strong Economy
      • Brazil is currently the third largest democracy in the world.
      • The democratic form of government in the Country is only 25 years old, which makes it 38 years younger than India’s democratic regime and 200 years younger than that of the United States.
      • Today, it has an exemplary democratic process supported by one of the most advanced voting systems in the world (expedient and fraud free) and an increasingly transparent regulatory environment.
      • Last year Brazil’s main stock exchange (BM&F BOVESPA) rose 71% in US dollar terms, even faster than India’s.
      • Last In…First Out- When the world sunk into a financial quicksand in 2008, Brazil was one of the last economies to succumb and among the first to rise out of the recessive sandpit.
      • Brazil will play host to the world’s two biggest sporting events in the coming years – the 2014 soccer World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics – should also give a major boost to the economy.
      • Strong Growth, Stability & Market Friendly Policies Attract FDI

      • According to the World Investment Prospects Survey 2009-2011, Brazil was ranked the fourth most attractive destination country for FDI, after China, the US and India.
      • 197 of Fortune 500 companies have investments in Brazil, meaning that they maintain plants or offices and employ workers in Brazil.
      • Incentives & Tax Benefits- Export incentives are available to producers and manufacturers for promoting Brazilian exports. Tax suspension and exemption of import tariffs, excise tax, and value-added tax on sales and services is provided for imported goods that will be used in the manufacture of products for export.

      • E-commerce- E-commerce in Brazil has been growing at over 30% per year since 2000, reaching close to US$ 5 billion in 2009.
      • Tourism- Brazil is a very popular tourist destination among people in world over. It attracts about 6 million foreign tourists every year. Thus the tourism sector promises great investment opportunities.
      • Businessmen involved in heavy industries investment would particularly be benefitted to a large extent as Brazil is a country that develops submarines and aircraft, and promotes research in aerospace.
    • With these advantages, the investors would be in a win-win situation. The geographic conditions, the government initiative - all these factors make Brazil a heaven for investors to invest in.
