Despite a sharp economic slowdown, foreign direct investment remains steady in Brazil: $65.272 billion in 2012, down slightly from $66.6 billion in 2011.
The country is expected to continue attracting capital as it prepares to host the World Cup, next year, and the Olympic Games in 2016.
Among economic growing sectors, Brazil has had an explosion in its e-commerce market.
As internet access proliferates in the country, Brazilians are increasingly using the web to find discounts and purchase products, from electronic goods to home appliances and fashion items.
Last year, J.P. Morgan made headlines investing $45 million in the Brazilian online shoes and apparel retailer Dafiti. A recent Forrester study predicts that Brazilian e-commerce will increase 18% year-over-year, with total sales expected to hit $22 billion by 2016.
