Brazil on the International Stage

In the past several years, Brazil has assumed a more prominent voice on global trade and energy issues. As the global financial crisis took hold in 2008, Brazil appeared poised to recover more quickly than many others due to strong industrial and agricultural exports. Brazil's economic rise has led it to pursue greater influence in international forums at the same time that it fosters cooperation among countries in the developing world with "south-south" initiatives. Analysts say that the United States stands to benefit from a stronger Brazil that serves as a partner on energy and regional security initiatives. Source: CFR.
