What are Brazil's Economic Challenges?

User Avatar
Brazilian economic strategy must be to seek new international partners such as investors and importers for our products. But it is important to emphasize that the Brazilian production is traded within our market. That is, for every $ 100 produced, 85% are domestic, 15%, on the outside. This shows the importance of our market.

Brasilia is the capital of the Federative Republic of Brazil and head of the Federal District government, [8] being the fourth most populous Brazilian city. [note 1] In the census conducted by IBGE in 2010, its population is 2,562,963 inhabitants [5]. Brasilia also has the second highest GDP per capita of Brazil (40 696.00 dollars) between the capital cities, surpassed only by Victoria (60 592.00 dollars). [12] Along with Annapolis (139 km) and Goiânia (209 km) makes the axis Brasilia Goiania, Anapolis, the most developed region of Central Brazil. Inaugurated on 21 April 1960 by the then president Juscelino Kubitschek de Oliveira, Brasilia is the third capital of Brazil, after Salvador and Rio de Janeiro. The transfer of the principal organs of the federal administration for the new capital was progressive, with the move of the headquarters of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Federal. The urban plan of the capital, known as the "Pilot Plan" was prepared by urban planner Lucio Costa, who, taking advantage of the region's topography, the project has adapted to the lake Paranoá, designed in 1893 by the Mission Cruls. [13] The lake stores 600 million cubic meters of water. Many of the buildings of the Federal Capital were designed by renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer.

In general, poorer people. Most favelas are around Rio de Janeiro though other cities have similar problems with housing. A large portion of the favela residents are migrants from the North and Northeast who traveled South in search of work after certain industries in their home region subsided. There were periods of massive immigration south which saw millions of people arriving in only a decade.Type your answer here...

What is the capital city of Brazil?

User Avatar
Brasilia is the capital of Brazil. The capital was moved from Rio de Janeiro in 1960, partly to stimulate development in the interior of Brazil. Brasília became the capital city of Brazil on April 21, 1960. It's the third city in Brazil's history to become the nation's capital. Previous capitals were the colonial capital at Salvador (1549 to 1793), and then at the largest city of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro (1793 to 1960). In 1956, Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek de Olveira ordered the building of Brasilia to fulfill an article in Brazil's constiution of 1891, which recommended moving the capital to a more central location within the country. It took 41 months to construct the government buildings at Brasilia. Brazilia
