The last two years were those of apprehension for Brazilians, as well as as for the rest of the world. The economic turmoil that hit the world was not as strong here in Brazil as in USA and EU, but was still felt.

The Brazilian government was if nothing very very lucky in 2009. We found oil and found out we will host two major, international sporting events: the Olympic Games and the World Soccer Championship. Investors from all over the world are coming to Brazil. Wow, let the year of the tiger come!

When in Manaus last November, I interviewed an experienced business man, who gave me a good picture of what happened from 2008 to now in Brazil. As a free trade zone, Manaus, where he lives and has his business, is a fantastic thermometer of what happens in the whole country.



As you could see Brazil is really back on track, ready to grow even more in 2010.
