Brazilian Market – Risks & Opportunities for creating a successful business.

Synopsis: With 3,290,000 square miles, bordering 10 other countries and with 4,650 miles of coastline, Brazil is the largest country in Latin America and fifth largest in the world. Brazil’s 2016 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of US$1.8 trillion ranks Brazil as the world’s ninth-largest economy.

Another reason to be excited about the Brazilian economy is that - after several quarters of low growth –at the moment experiencing unprecedented levels of optimism and a renewed economic drive which is boosting confidence for future growth there is an air of optimism about future growth levels. However, doing business in Brazil is notoriously complicated, and there are several aspects that organizations should consider in order to effectively do business without setbacks.

Boa Praca Group, a Brazilian owned company operating in the maritime and offshore sector since 1960, would like to share with the audience a brief summary on how to enter in the Brazilian Market and how to minimize company risks by seeking the support of reliable business partners. During the presentation, our new project will be presented - a commercial representation sales force for foreign suppliers who are willing to enter in the Brazilian Market.
