Brazil was catapulted into world view in October 2009 when Rio de Janeiro became
host for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva
(2003-2010) wept with joy. "Our hour has arrived," he declared.

Brazil is the ‘B’ in the BRIC emerging economies of the developing world, together with
Russia, India and China. Within the last decade, Brazil has grown as a developing
industrial country and regional power, extending its global influence in areas such as
trade, biofuels, biodiversity, and climate change. According to
The World Bank, South
America's largest economy became the world’s sixth largest economy in 2011, as
measured by nominal gross domestic product (GDP).
