Economic Hot Spots in Brazil
The cities of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte, located in the country’s central region, are the most populous.
A vast majority of Brazilians live in urban areas, following a brisk urbanization period over the past two decades. This urbanization has helped to drive the massive economic development Brazil has undergone in the past few years.
Brazil has attracted major interest in almost all areas of its economy and infrastructure. Its main imports are electrical and transport equipment, machinery, oil, chemical equipment, electronics and automotive parts. Other industries in high demand in the Brazilian economy are software, information technology, and petroleum.
