Foreign investment in BrazilAccording to figures disclosed by Brazil’s Central Bank, foreign direct investment in Brazil was over US$ 5 billion in April and nearly US$ 23 billion since the year began.

The result during the 12-month period ended April, US$ 63.682 billion, was also the highest since records started being kept, in 1947.
