Already Latin America’s largest economy, Brazil is one of the world’s four most dynamic global economies, along with Russia, India and China. Goldman Sachs has tipped Brazil and the other ‘BRIC’ nations as having economies that will lead the world by the year 2050, overtaking the current economic powerhouses.
Brazil enjoys one of the most stable economies in Latin America, with steady inflation, falling unemployment and interest rates at the lowest level in recent memory. Foreign direct investment is at an all-time high and the private sector is booming as a result.
This impressive economic climate is in part due to Brazil’s political stability, as well as the Brazilian government’s ongoing commitment to national infrastructure improvements. Brazil has seen successful global campaigns to raise its tourism profile in recent years, and tourism numbers are rising rapidly. Little wonder, considering the breathtaking natural resources the country has to offer; not to mention its unrivalled climate and miles of unspoiled palm-lined beaches.
Just some of Brazil’s many benefits are:
Booming economy and stable political climate
Investment-friendly government that actively encourages foreign investors
Healthy tourism sector, set to grow further over the coming years
Unbeatable climate with around 300 days of sunshine per year
Low cost of living and real estate at incredibly low prices
Idyllic natural landscape, with over 3,000km of beautiful beaches
