Brazil represents an immense potential marketplace for organizations of all types and sizes.

Brazil’s distinctive cultural heritage has been influenced by a variety of diverse populations and cultures. It is crucial to have a basic understanding of its history, culture and work practices before attempting to “do business with the Brazilians.”
