Why Brazil?

Brazil is the fifth-largest country in the world with a population of around 190 million people. It has one of the world’s most rapidly developing economies and a GDP per head greater than either India or China. Consumers and businesses have developed higher standards both for quality and value for money and Brazil has a large and prosperous middle-class, with an appetite for high quality healthcare.

Against this background, Brazil has immense potential as a trade partner, with huge opportunities for UK health and life science companies.
