Brazil is a massive country, taking up the whole north eastern part of South America, and is easily the largest economy in Latin Amercia – Sao Paulo alone has a bigger economy than Argentina! And with a GDP of $2.3 trillion, it’s the world’s seventh largest economy.

Brazil and the UK have long historic trade and investment ties, and although overall imports into Brazil have fallen over by around 14% over the last couple of years, imports from the UK only dropped by around 5%, so it still offers a great business opportunity for UK businesses and services.
