Today Brazil is the seventh largest economy in the world. With a population of 200 million living on a land as vast as Europe, the country is the fifth largest country in the world when considering population and surface. In the past 20 years Brazil has been going through several significant economic reforms that has stabilised the economy and resulted in an inflow of foreign direct investments.
Trade relations between Sweden and Brazil have a deep-rooted tradition and today over 200 Swedish subsidiaries are active in the country, providing 70 000 people jobs.
Rich on diverse natural resources such as oil and gas and minerals and with significant growth in agriculture and manufacturing for the aviation industry are all reasons why Brazil is a very interesting market for the future.
