Brazil-Asia Ties: A New Driver for Global Growth
A Luncheon Presentation by MILENA ZANIBONI, Managing Director, Corporate and Government Ratings, Standard & Poor's Brazil
The BRIC economies, particularly China, India, and Brazil, emerged from the global financial crisis much more rapidly than the US and other advanced economies. What are the reasons behind this? Is this growth sustainable? There has also been increased trading among the BRIC countries, resulting in less dependency on advanced economies. Has the much talked about decoupling already happened? What is the expected trajectory of trade and investment links between Brazil and Latin America and China and Asia?
