‘Brazil is set to take centre stage in the coming years as the host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games. However, given that growth has yet to rebound strongly following a significant slowdown in recent quarters, and a number of business environment issues continue to hinder foreign investment, the country’s investment outlook is not all rosy. As such, while we expect some sectors will experience robust growth in the next few years on the back of these sporting events, continued efforts to reduce the ‘custo Brazil’, as well as Brazil’s growing consumer base, will be more significant drivers of long-term investment in the country.’
