Free business-culture briefing on Brazil
The largest country in South America in economic output, population and area, Brazilian culture draws on a unique fusion of European, African and indigenous influences.
First inhabited by indigenous tribes over 8,000 years ago, Brazil became a Portuguese colony in the 16th century. European immigrants and African slaves intermarried with the indigenous peoples to a greater extent than in neighbouring countries. The result is a society that is diverse, resolutely South-American, yet also distinct in many important ways from its ‘Latino’ Spanish-speaking neighbours.
This free business-culture briefing on Brazil provides a free 17-page overview of the cultural background to business in Brazil.
