As home to the recent World Cup and the upcoming Summer Olympic Games, Brazil has developed an exciting and fast-growing economy and has become a prominent global investment destination. And as Latin America's largest economy and the sixth-largest in the world, Brazil has created a broad and diversified economic infrastructure that offers U.S. companies opportunities to export goods and services to its growing population. Coupled with those opportunities for American exporters are many challenges in establishing a market presence in Brazil.

  • Distribution agreements + commercial agency
