Internationalization of companies

Brazilian companies reached such a level of competitiveness that recognition stretches beyond Brazilian borders. The goods manufactured and the services rendered by Brazilian companies have gained more and more international respect.

With this, the international insertion of these companies contributes to global development, encouraging the transaction between countries and establishing important trade partnerships. The presence of Brazilian organizations abroad also contributes to the competition on the domestic market and fosters the repositioning of other companies on the world scenario. Generating capital and jobs is reaching a global scale.

The BNDES, as the main promoter of development, has a specific line for internationalizing Brazilian companies. The purpose is to encourage the insertion and the strengthening of companies in the international market by supporting investments or projects to be carried out overseas.

In addition to the financial support for exports of Brazilian products, the BNDES assists in the international insertion of companies by identifying opportunities and guiding the structuring of organizations’ projects outside Brazil.

How support is offered

The BNDES supports the internationalization of companies by financing or raising the capital of companies, through the subscription of bonds and securities.

To be eligible for the BNDES’ support for internationalization, companies must be:

  • Companies with headquarters and administration in Brazil and be domestically controlled, including subsidiaries abroad; or
  • Foreign companies whose shareholders with more significant voting capital and more influence on activities the companies carry out are:

    a. companies that are directly or indirectly controlled by an individual or group of individuals domiciled and residing in Brazil; or

    b. companies controlled by a government entity in Brazil.

Investments eligible for support include those related to building new branches, purchasing, expanding or modernizing installed plants and equity investments, as well as working capital needs (to be defined during analysis), provided they are associated with these investments..

In the event of financing, the maximum support percentage is 60% of the investment.

BNDES gathers experiences from world development banks to start elaborating its long-term strategy
Four months after deeply reformulating its operational policies, the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) begins the process of internal reflection that will lead to the development of a medium and long-term strategy, with guidelines until 2030. By the end of the year, a cycle of discussions involving the Bank’s technical staff will discuss what should be the role and performance of BNDES in an economy with low inflation and interest rates. The first step last Friday (05/05) was the accomplishment of the international seminar “The role of development banks in the present and in the future: experiences, opportunities and challenges,” organized in partnership with the World Bank, which gathered executives from eight international institutions and employees from BNDES, for a whole day. The event also marked the beginning of a series of activities to celebrate the 65 years of BNDES, which will be completed in June.
