Covering an area of 8.5 million km2 and with a population of around 200 million people, Brazil emerged in the international scene as a country with a solid economy and stable currency, being able to cope with the disastrous effects of the current global economic crisis. It recently received the investment grade from prominent risk-assessment agencies, which means the country is more likely to meet payment obligations, attracting more investments. In addition, Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa formed a group known as Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) to discuss and implement ways to improve the global economic scenario. Brazil is also a full member of the Mercosur and actively participated in numerous United Nations missions.
