How will the Brazilian business environment develop over the next 3-5 years and what should foreign investors be aware of?


Q


We have an enormous potential for new investments and foreign investors need to be aware of the fact that some important pieces of Brazilian legislation and regulation may not be updated for all their needs. As a result of that, investors need to understand


that flexibility is extremely important and it is essential that their business plans leave room for adjustments and changes due to given the constantly changing environment Brazil is in. fi
