A Closer Look At The Evolution Of Brazil’s Overseas Investments

Brazil’s Economic Boom

The development finance landscape is changing rapidly. While this type of finance has historically flowed from developed to developing nations, over the last decade, major emerging economies such as China and Brazil have fueled a growing trend of South-South development flows, increasingly channeling their overseas investments to other developing nations. For example, BNDES dominates investment flows in Andean and Southern Cone countries. It’s also making significant strategic investments in other Latin American and sub-Saharan African nations.
As we note in the slide deck, BNDES has extended its international development finance role through a variety of initiatives. A few include: the—creation of an investment arm; an export-import branch; a subsidiary in London that helps with internationalization of Brazilian companies; and management of new financial instruments such as theAmazon Fund and Brazil’s Climate Fund.

These Investments Have Social and Environmental Implications

While spurring economic growth, BNDES faces multiple challenges in ensuring that its investments are environmentally sound and socially just. For example, BNDES makes significant investments in Latin American and sub-Saharan African nations, some of which may have weak governance systems to control the impacts of investments from overseas.
Adequately addressing these challenges requires a set of guidelines to ensure that investments are made in a socially just and environmentally beneficial manner. BNDES is increasingly interested in being recognized as a responsible global investor, already putting in place initiatives like its socio-environmental policies. But it’s important that BNDES—and Brazil as a country—achieve greater commitments and safeguards.

I usually do not leave a bunch of responses, but after browsing a few of the comments here "A Closer Look At The Evolution Of Brazil's Overseas Investments".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks look as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I'd
like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.

Could you post a list of all of your social networking sites like your linkedin
profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
