Why China is Investing in Brazil


Why China is Investing in Brazil

President Dilma Rousseff's trip to China was evidently a business venture: not only was she accompanied by 212 Brazilian business people, but her visit was preceded by an announcement that Chinese businesses were preparing to invest US$30 billion in Brazil.

Brazil is an investment hub

These Chinese companies include Taiwan-based Foxconn, the world's biggest contract electronics manufacturer, which produces goods for some of the world's biggest tech companies: Apple, Hewlett Packard and Dell.  Currently, Foxconn operates mostly in mainland China, but facing rising labour costs, it is seriously considering a move to Brazil.  The country's science and technology minister, Aloizio Mercadante, says Foxconn may start manufacturing in Brazil this year.

The company is planning on investing as much as US$12 billion into Brazil, according to Rousseff, who claimed: “you've got an ample range of investments that go from $300-to-$400m to $12bn over 5 to 6 years in the case of Foxconn.”

Global giants such as Ford have been manufacturing in Brazil for years, taking full advantage of low labour costs – particularly in the north-eastern state of Bahia – as well as a stable democracy, rapidly-growing economy and abundant natural resources.

Interested in investing in Brazil?

It's not just manufacturers who can take advantage of Brazil's economy.  Individuals are increasingly finding that an investment in Brazil can prove very fruitful indeed.

Brazilian property is one area where individual investors can see great returns.  Many areas of Brazil, such as Bahia, offer an under-developed property market packed with plenty of bargains. Brazilians have long-enjoyed holidaying in tropical Bahia, thanks to its excellent lifestyle and the stunning environment of the coconut coast.   This state's well-established industrial base ensures that the buoyant property market is underpinned by local demand, particularly as the tourism industry continues to grow.

Brazil's growth opportunities ensure that it is attractive to multi-national companies and individual investors alike – and will remain so long after Rousseff has returned from China.
