Despite Brazil's Financial Crisis, Havaianas Still Has The World At Its Feet

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- If you ask a foreigner to name the brand they believe is most representative of Brazil, they would probably name Havaianas. If you ask this question in Brazil, you’ll probably get a similar answer. Very few brands around the world have managed to reinvent themselves and achieve international status without having to change the essence of their product, quite like Havaianas has. After all, to turn a mundane commodity into an object desired by all social classes in more than one hundred countries is no simple mission.

Brazil's economy takes the good with the bad

Brazil's president is battling scandal and low poll numbers, inflation and unemployment are soaring, and ratings agencies are taking the knife to its credit rating. Is there any good news investors can count on from Latin America's largest economy?

There are some bright spots, analysts say. Yet for now, the immediate term outlook is overwhelmingly grim for the country that put the 'B' in the acronym BRICS — shorthand for the most attractive emerging market economies investors once considered a sure bet.

China's e-commerce know-how benefits growing Brazilian sector

SAO PAULO - About 20,000 ePacket (EUB) parcels are delivered to Brazil every day from Yiwu, a large wholesale commodity provider in China's eastern coastal province of Zhejiang.

Yiwu has been named by the UN, the World Bank and J.P. Morgan, among others, as the "largest small commodity market" in the world, attracting a great number of international buyers.

"Most commodities sold along Sao Paulo's famous March 25 Street shopping district come from Yiwu," said Qiu Genjun, general manager of China Express Latin America Co Ltd.

In Brazil, EUBs are the result of close cooperation between China Post and Brazilian Post. Compared with around $76 per kg for UPS and around $110 for DHL to transport parcels from Beijing to Sao Paulo, it only costs about $22 per kg using China Post's airmail service, Qiu said, adding that other advantages of EUBs also include lower odds of package loss and faster customs clearance.

FB's Investment In Education Pays Off, Blueprint Crosses 200,000 Enrolments

Facebook made a significant investment in educating the industry, including key stakeholders such as marketers, agency professionals, SMBs (small and medium businesses) and Facebook partners, when it launched initiatives such as Blueprint.

Report: Marketing Firm Owns Rights To Select Brazil National Team Squad

It probably doesn’t surprise anyone to know that Brazil’s corrupt soccer federation engaged in corrupt behavior, but these newly released documents are pretty alarming. According to Brazilian paper Estadão, the federation sold all sorts of the Seleção’s economic rights to a marketing firm, including final say on who gets called up and who plays in games.

The various contracts and the negotiations that granted the Cayman Island-based Saudi Arabian front firm ISE these rights are interesting in all their particulars, but the highlight is the company’s power over the squad itself.

Brazil Oil Giant Petrobras Sells $2.5 Billion in Bonds

Brazil’s state-controlled oil giant, Petroleo Brasileiro SA, PETR4.BR +5.38%  sold $2.5 billion in 100-year bonds on Monday, the latest sign of robust demand from investors for bonds that offer higher rates than safe government debt.

The bonds were sold at a rate of 8.45% and attracted about $13 billion in orders from investors, according to an investor tracking the sale. In comparison, a 30-year U.S. Treasury bond yields 2.94%, and a Mexican government bond that matures in 2110 recently traded at a yield of 5.52%, according to FactSet.

Some analysts were surprised by the strong demand and the long term of the Petrobras debt—such lengthy bond issuance is typically seen from highly-rated institutions like universities. Petrobras carries a junk rating from Moody’s Investors Service and is rated just one notch above junk by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services and Fitch Ratings. The company has been dealing with the fallout of a corruption scandal that resulted in management changes and delays in reporting earnings.

Partnering to Improve Market Data in Brazil

Quality data is paramount when it comes to helping markets reach their full potential. This is especially true in the agriculture industry where businesses are always searching for reliable data that can help them make important decisions like what to produce or how much to buy. I recently joined a team of USDA employees from my agency — the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) — and the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) that traveled to Brazil to share how we collect and disseminate key market data to help buyers and sellers make informed decisions.

Our trip to Brazil presented several opportunities to increase transparency in the inter-connected global marketplace. The primary purpose of the trip to Brasilia was to participate in the Regular Meeting of the Market Information for the Organization of the Americas (MIOA), which brings together a network of 33 member countries to collect, process, analyze, and disseminate information relative to markets and agricultural commodities.
