Observations on the Rising Tide of Brazil/Florida Trade


Many states position themselves to increase international trade as it brings both inbound investment and job opportunities. In Florida, there is a public private economic development authority called "Enterprise Florida" charged with increasing foreign trade and investment in the state. Indeed, Florida is one state that aggressively has targeted and is currently pursuing trade opportunities throughout Latin America. Specifically, Enterprise Florida has worked to attract business opportunities from Brazil and at the same time connect Florida business to opportunities in Brazil.

This paper will outline the development, expansion and current status of Brazil/Florida trade. In addition, the paper will advance some areas for future growth in trade between these jurisdictions.
