Looking at the economic relationship between Brazil and Japan, it is clear that this relationship has consisted basically of Brazil exporting primary products to, and importing manufactured goods from, Japan.
Since the establishment of Mitsubishi Corporation do Brasil in the early 50’s, we have been monitoring the relationship between these two countries, contributing to their economic growth by acting as an agent for trade between them. The economic ties uniting Brazil and Japan will get stronger and stronger from here on. Mitsubishi Corporation do Brasil aims to make continuous efforts in order to further increase the trade of goods and services between both countries.
At the same time, since the 1990’s, Brazil has achieved macroeconomic stability, abolished protectionist policies, promoted the privatization of its industries and fostered the strengthening of Mercosur, a free trade agreement that exists between Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. And, with all these reforms, Brazil started paving the way for a new kind of economic growth. Brazil is no longer seen solely as a supplier of primary products, but is now considered a strategic player for the production and export of manufactured goods, representing a huge consumer market for many sectors. The massive foreign direct investments that have been made in Brazil in recent years illustrate this change.
And such changes also affect Mitsubishi Corporation do Brasil. Reflecting the new scenario, Mitsubishi Corporation do Brasil now aims to increase domestic and intraregional business in Brazil and in Mercosur, as well as to promote its business with countries other than Japan.
