Description of the Online Subject: Brazilian International Trade.

International Trade of Brazil (South America) benefited from more dynamism of the emerging economies since 2002, when it started a geographical foreign trade diversification strategy, increasing exports to Asia, the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR), Africa, and the Middle East.

  1. Brazil (BRICS Countries) also took advantage from commodities' price increases
  2. China plays a key position in Brazilian International Trade. China became the main export destination of Brazil, in the lead of traditional trade partners like the United States, Argentina or the Netherlands, representing 83% of commodities' imports (special soybeans and iron ore)
  3. The United States, MERCOSUR, and the European Union are the largest importers of Brazilian products
  4. Since 2007, Brazil has received a substantial foreign direct investment (FDI) inflow owing to the investment grade rating
  5. Foreign Direct Investment and stock market investments augmented up to 70% of Brazilian foreign liabilities
  6. Brazil jumped last year to the fifth place among the largest foreign direct investment destination
  7. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Brazil grew from USD 26 billion in 2009 to USD 48 billion
  8. Only the United States (USD 228 billion), the People's Republic of 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 FDI is concentrated in the South and South-east Brazilian states (Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, and São Paulo)
  10. 90% of international trade of Brazil is imported and exported through Brazilian ports
  11. The Port of Santos handles substantial volumes of all modalities of international cargo and leads the ranking for general and containerised cargoes that usually entail higher value-added products
