Doing Energy Business in Brazil – 1st edition

Producing and supplying energy is critical to a country's development in terms of economic competitiveness. Brazil has come a long way in developing its nationwide energy base. After becoming self-sufficient in oil and now the world's 6th largest economy, Brazil has an energy industry that is regarded as unique and superbly positioned to attract oil, gas and renewables investors from around the world.

Britcham's purpose in publishing Doing Energy Business in Brazil is to share its members' broad-ranging expertise in the industry. The first edition of this technical publication provides a background on the development of Brazil's energy mix, a discussion on Brazil's political and economic resources and infrastructure, industry regulation, clarification on taxation and funding, and the outlook for an industry that has increasingly strengthened Brazil's prosperous and competitive position in business.

This book will take you a step further in understanding how the energy industry works and how you can assist foreign investors in business. The authoring by, and collaboration among, Britcham members to produce this 1st edition demonstrates our strengths in sharing experience to develop new business opportunities.
