Executive Summary: South America’s largest country, Brazil covers a land area of 8.5m sq km straddling the equator. The climate is mainly tropical with rainforest covering large swathes of the country, although the south is more temperate. Just over half of the population of 200m is of white European origin, but there are substantial minorities of mixed race. Portuguese is the official and most widely spoken language. Brazil’s economy is large and well-developed, although growth has slowed dramatically in the last three to four years (from 7.5% in 2010 to 0.9% in 2012). Agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services all play a significant role in the Brazilian economy. Brazil's historically high interest rates have made it an attractive destination for foreign investors. However, large capital inflows over the past several years have contributed to the appreciation of the currency which the government has desperately tried to counteract. Various incentives are given to encourage domestic manufacturing and assembly. However, the tax system is extremely complex and excessive bureaucracy can be a problem.
