Brazil Macroeconomic Outlook
Demand in the Brazilian market continues to grow, increasing about 8% (YTD, Feb 2010), and the appreciating Brazilian Real caused the ADR growth as the exchange rate altered (e.g.from 2.37 Real to the Dollar in February 2009 to 1.86 Real to the Dollar in February 2010.

The expectation is of strong GDP expansion (+5.35 percent), a stable exchange rate, and an increase lending rate). While the global economy has shown no signs of recovery, Brazil has emerged as an option: foreign direct investment (FDI) for 2010 (projected at US$37.5 billion) will be at its second-highest level in history, despite the expected reduction in global FDI.

The favorable situation has made the Brazilian hotel industry especially attractive. Large international hotel chains have set up development teams in Brazil. There are other reasons for the attention:
- The country will be hosting the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics events that induce demand, increase international visibility, and set a deadline for the execution of large public investments, thereby increasing executive confidence and ensuring strong economic activity.
- Creation of Pro-Copa line of credit, which will make available R$1 billion for the renovation and expansion of the hotel supply, with attractive interest rates and terms (starting at 6.9 percent, in up to 18 years), through the Brazilian Development Bank BNDES. The new financing conditions will make projects more feasible and give developers and owners good mechanisms for financial leveraging.
