Known as the home of the Amazon Rainforest, Brazil is the largest country in Latin America. It is also the largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world, giving it distinction among the Portuguese-speaking people. Brazil also holds the distinction of bordering all South American countries, with the exception of Ecuador and Chili.
Because Brazil contains the world's seventh largest economy in both GDP and purchasing power, and is one of the world's fastest growing economies, business in Brazil is a promising field. It is considered an emerging global power and is poised to have a powerful position in the global economy in the near future.
