About BRAZIL and the Market Development Cooperator Program
By 2050, Brazil will be the fifth largest economy in the World. The National Chamber Foundation-TraderRoots and the Brazil-U.S. Business Council believe that Brazil offers a compelling target market for the Department of Commerce Market Development Cooperator Program's effort to increase small- and medium-sized exporter opportunities. The country's rapid economic growth, constantly increasing demand for U.S. imports, favorable political climate, and positive demographic trends make Brazil an attractive market.
The National Chamber Foundation along with TradeRoots and Brazil-U.S. Business Council have been awarded a Department of Commerce Market Development Cooperator Program for 2011-2012. Their cooperator agreement is designed to support President Obama's National Export Initiative by helping small- and medium-sized companies grow their businesses through exports. In particular, they are looking for green technology companies who would like to begin exporting or expand their exports to Brazil.
