Brazilian trade has so many 'Spainish ’ practices that it is very inefficient and third world ; this tends to delay and weaken all aspects of business there. The theory of an expanding mild class is plausible as are the natural resources but getting a profit out of this is tricky . The Hansa trust has a large Brazilian element (40%) Ocean Wilson Holdings which is busy expanding port facilities but this trust also has the advantage that it is run as a private wealth fund …so it is an interesting option to consider.

In my last job we struggled for three months to get a mobile phone contract and even when we got it most of the time it was useless because there was rarely reception.

I just hope that they get rid of this lot in the election later this year because they have been abominable.
