Foreign Trade

Supporting competitive Brazilian companies in the international market is a primary objective of the Brazilian government. Since 1990, the BNDES has been part of the successful efforts towards maintaining a market-based, competitive environment for Brazilian exporters. BNDES-exim provides Brazilian producers of goods and services with an important source of financing for trading with the rest of the world. Among BNDES-exim’s efforts, the increasing support of Brazilian companies trading in South America has been emphasized, in response to their strategy to strengthen commercial and financial ties across the continent.

The goal to support the development of a more dynamic export sector, integrated with the global market, also meets the objective of strengthening the domestic market, which operates as a powerful instrument for Brazilian companies to increase productivity and improve the quality of their goods and services.

BNDES-exim’s support to Brazilian export companies represents a significant contribution to achieving long-term sustainable development, by offering Brazilian businesses located abroad the financial instruments for fair (*) and successful undertakings.

(*) Brazil is an active member of the WTO and is part of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.
