Brazil is unique in South America because, following independence from Portugal, it did not fragment into separate countries as did British and Spanish possessions in the region; rather, it retained its identity through the intervening centuries and a variety of forms of government.

Because of that hegemony, the Portuguese language is universal except among Brazil’s native Indians, especially those in the more remote reaches of the Amazon basin. At the turn of the 21st century, Brazilians marked the 500th anniversary of Portuguese contact with a mixture of public celebration and deprecation.

Brazil's economic and social progress between 2003 and 2014 lifted 29 million people out of poverty and inequality dropped significantly The income level of the poorest 40 percent of the population rose, on average of 7.1 percent between 2003 and 2014, compared to a 4.4 percent income growth for the population in the previous year.

For example, Brazil’s economy is now larger than Italy’s, which accounted for 2.4 percent of global GDP in 2020. Several factors contribute to the success of Brazil’s emerging market: better international relations, the adaptation of technology, and improved education. However, the most important element of an emerging market is a solid mix of domestic companies.

 

Foreign Direct Investment In Brazil:

Foreign direct investment into Brazil boomed between 2009 to 2011 but had been slowing down ever since. However, according to the World Investment Report 2021 published by UNCTAD, FDI inflows have decreased by 62 percent, from 65 billion dollars in 2019 to 25 billion dollars in 2020.

As a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, Brazil saw a significant decrease in FDI in 2020, as the privatization program and infrastructure concessions were paused for several months. The most affected industries were transportation which had a decrease in the inflow of over 85 percent, financial services with a 70 percent decline in inflows, oil and gas extraction with a 65 percent decrease in FDI, and the automotive industry which was also contracted by 65 percent.

Nevertheless, there were still some significant investments made in the country even amid the COVID 19 crisis. In January 2021, U.S based New Fortress Energy announced that it would buy Hygo Energy Transition and Golar LNG, in a combined 5 billion dollars deal that marks the group's entry into the Brazilian natural gas sector and makes the company the leading gas to the power company in Brazil. Additionally, with Brazil opening its natural gas industry to private investors, other major oil companies, including BP PLC and EIG Global Partners, are also looking into multibillion-dollar investments in the country. On the other hand, Ford Motor Co. also announced in January, that it would close all three plants in Brazil and stop producing automobiles in the country, where it had been operating since 1919, as the pandemic amplified persistent industry idle capacity and slowed sales, resulting in significant losses. The stock of FDI has remained stable over the past two years and reached 608 billion dollars at the end of 2020.
