As one of the ten largest economies in the world, with a high demand for advanced technologies and ambitious plans to expand its economy, Brazil offers enormous market potential – especially for the export-oriented global economy.

However, doing business in Brazil involves dealing with its distinctive business culture and administrative procedures. As a Brazilian institution, FGV Europe is prepared to assist foreign institutions and companies with every aspect of entering the Brazilian market or expanding existing activities in the region.

Our comparative advantage includes:

  • A deep understanding of the functioning of the Brazilian economy, institutions and society;

  • A privileged access to unique business opportunities, high-level decision-makers, and potential project partners;

  • A pool of experts that guide the client through all stages of project planning, implementation and management;

  • A global reach through a broad network of international institutions.
