ABN Newswire interviews Luis Henrique Aroeira Neves. Luis Henrique (MIB USYD) is a "carioca" turned Sydneysider. An International Trade Advisor at the Brazil Trade Bureau, a branch of the Consulate General of Brazil in Sydney, he succinctly explains why Australian investors should consider Brazil.
The B in the BRIC acronym, Brazil, positions itself to be one of the most successful emerging economies of the XXI century. Brazil's GDP forecasts indicate to an increase of more than 7% in 2010. So far this year, industrial production has grown 11% compared to the same period of last year. Brazil is a stable, democratic, westernized country the size of Australia plus an extra NSW with plenty of untapped potential, human resources and water. Its domestic market thrives on a population of 190 million with a growing middle-class, well positioned mining, agribusiness, oil, biofuels, manufacturing, and services industries offer a range of opportunities. The 2009 OECD Survey of Brazil pointed how, by using prudent fiscal policies, the country reaped the benefits of the boom in commodities, with a relatively mild downturn during the GFC, and a quick rebound. According to UNCTAD 2010 World Investment Survey, Brazil is now the 3rd preferred FDI destination of global CEOs.
After successfully hosting the 2007 Pan-American Games in Rio, Brazil is now getting ready for the FIFA World Cup 2014, and the Olympic Games of 2016.
