About Brazil

Brazil, a Portuguese speaking country, which occupies roughly half of South America and is currently emerging from a deep economic recession resulting in prolonged decelerated growth.


In 2015 and 2016, the Brazilian economy faced a negative growth rate due to political instability, high unemployment and unfavourable tight credit conditions (World Bank report, 2017). Most recent economic data however suggest that the economy is slightly recovering, largely underpinned by upbeats in private consumption and export growth (FocusEconomics.com, 2017).

São Paulo

The City

Despite the challenges, Brazil is Latin America’s largest economy with rich biodiversity, abundant agricultural, mineral and energy potentials coupled with enormous internal growth potential.

The biggest Brazilian city, Sao Paulo, is the most densely populated city in America as well as in the Southern Hemisphere and the 11th most populous city in the world.

The city exerts strong cultural, economic and political influence both internally and internationally. It is the largest city in the Latin America and the Southern Hemisphere by GDP and has the 11th largest GDP in the world. The city is the home to the Sao Paulo Stock Exchange and headquarters of most multinational corporations.

São Paulo’s economic hub is Paulista Avenue. In the global ranking of cities that host top international conference, Sao Paulo out-shined the cities in America but placed 12th in the world (International Congress and Convention Association; 2009).
