As one of the BRIC countries, Brazil has experienced phenomenal growth over the last decade. Driven in large by its immense natural resources, this growth has seen Brazil firmly establish itself as a world economic power. As hosts to the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, all eyes will be on Brazil as it gears up to welcome the world.
