Brazil: a growing and revolutionary country!

by Ami K.
(Suginami, Tokyo, Japan)

Brazil is one of the most famous countries in the world. But we don't know about the details of Brazil. Why?? Maybe because there is a long distance between Japan and Brazil, I think.

It is often said that Brazil is located on the opposite side of Japan. So it seems that Japan and Brazil don't have any bilateral relationship. For example, economics, politics, and so on. Thus, the long distance makes us difficult to think and know about Brazil.

But recently, Brazil is beginning to lead economics as a BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) country. Whereas Japan has depressed and become third in the world in terms of Gross Domestic Product, BRIC countries are developing rapidly.

We Japanese can't disregard these facts. We can't survive this world without considering the existence of BRIC countries! So we should try to know Brazil a lot.

Concerning politics of Brazil, one incident made me surprised!! It was that Dilma Rousseff was appointed as a president! She is the first female president in Brazil. We haven't had any female presidents in Japan so far. So this incident seemed very revolutionary!

Japanese are apt to think of Southern American countries including Brazil as developing counties, maybe. But in my opinion, as I mentioned above, Brazil is a growing and revolutionary country!

There are a lot of points Japanese should follow in Brazil.
