Brazil Summary


Brazil is the tenth largest economy in the world and the largest country in Latin America with respect to land, population and markets. It has a territory that encompasses nearly half of South America and a population of over 170 million that is roughly half of South America. In most product sectors it constitutes nearly half of the Latin American market, and in a few electronics sub-sectors it claims to be one of the world's largest individual country markets.

Brazil is an active member of the MERCOSUR (the Common Market of the South) on a number of issues, including harmonization of environmental, health and safety policies. Until now, much of the MECOSUR's environmental work has been directed towards transportation of goods (including dangerous goods) and the safety of certain consumer products, such as cosmetics. MERCOSUR has expanded its harmonization efforts to encompass a wide variety of environment-related matters, including urban (ordinary household) wastes, industrial wastes, hazardous wastes and dangerous substances and products. In this regard, Brazil's take-back initiatives and other environmental standards may well influence the development of MERCOSUR instruments going forward.
