  3. The U.S., MERCOSUR, and the EU are the largest importers of the Brazilian products;
  4. Since 2007, Brazil has received a substantial foreign direct investment inflow owing to the investment grade rating;
  5. Foreign Direct Investment and stock market investments augmented up to 70% of the Brazilian foreign liabilities;
  6. Brazil jumped last year to the fifth place among the largest foreign direct investment destination;
  7. Foreign Direct Investment in Brazil grew from USD 26 billion in 2009 to USD 48 billion;
  8. Only the U.S. (USD 228 billion), China (USD 106 billion), Hong Kong (USD 69 billion) and Belgium (USD 62 billion) received more foreign direct investment (FDI) than Brazil;
  9. The majority of the FDI is concentrated in the South and South-east Brazilian states (Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, and São Paulo);
  10. 90% of the international trade of Brazil is imported and exported through the Brazilian ports;
