Miami-Dade County’s Beacon Council put on a Brazil Business Development
Strategy Conference aimed at putting together a report on Brazil to use
as a model for attracting Brazilian investment. Last year, Brazilians
spent $1.1 billion in the county, making them the first “billion-dollar”
international market for Miami. “Brazil is living a very good moment —
really a remarkable period of time” said Ambassador Luiz de Araujo
Castro. “We see ourselves today as a world player.” [Miami
