It seems we live or lived in the same Brazil.

Brazil must have to take advantage of this moment to make a high effort to improve R&D industry, which is almost null comparing to services. The Joao Reginatto´s opinion is more realistic.

Beyond the hype: Brazil once had a pretty active hardware design ecosystem in the 80's, with local telecom, IT and industrial equipment design and manufacturing. It was heavily targeted at the internal market, protected by import legislation and, in some cases, supported by state-owned companies. This hw industry was severely impacted by changes in the legislation in the early 90's. Most of what remained was bought by multinationals during the telecom bubble. Brazil is now trying to revamp the hw industry. In the IC area, Freescale has a Brazilian lab for 12 years now, and many DH start-ups popped up in the latest years. SW is in a much better shape, especially in the banking area: one of the few good side effects of the outrageous inflation of the 80s ... As a last note, don't get much impressed by Dr.Coelho's nice photo by the beach. Most Brazilian design centers are not located in seashore cities ...

Another caveat is Brazil (as a non-signatory of the Information Technology Agreement) has high tariffs on high technology products.

There is lots of excitement about Brasil (world cup, Olympics, BRIC, etc) but at least personally I feel there is little useful high-tech info available...opening up a research center and even tripling staff levels (from what level by the way) does not tell me much...more solid stuff pls...Kris

200 million tech-savvy consumers? Please... As a Brazilian living abroad I feel that we have to start walking the walk... This kind of article doesn't help Brazil in any sort of way, it's just a lot of hot air. We have to show where the real value is, and in that sense there is a lot to be done in Brazil if we really are to be an important player in the Tech sector. Let's raise the bar, please.

Interesting to read about this. Just recently I heard about the term BRIC. These are countries that show how a good government is needed in order to aspire a country to emerge. I didn't know Brazil is currently at the 8th rank! Hope to get there some day as I haven't worked with Brazilian engineers... yet.

I'm working in Brazil since 2005. As a CEO and Brazilian I share Dr. Coelho enthusiasm about Brazilian High Tech brilliant future. I had excellent experiences with Brazilian engineers (Product, Design and Software Engineers) and Government support for the area.

I have had some great experiences working on multi-national projects with Brazilian engineers and have the utmost respect for their capabilities. It is also a wonderful country to visit and the author is quite right -- there are many things there that could distract the most focused engineer!
