Compared with other countries, China to Brazil to buy the land belongs to the newcomers. The total number of foreigners to buy land for the big increase last year, Brazil introduced the "restraining order", land acquisition will be largely contained. Brazil, interviewed the parties involved, said the Chinese people welcome investment to Brazil.
"You ask the right person, I was to buy a piece of it." As talk of a Chinese in Brazil to buy one incident, Chen Gen (pseudonym) said.

In 1971, still in Brazil during the military regime by law bans foreigners from buying land in Brazil there is no prohibition on foreign companies registered in Brazil to buy. The law also leaves a loophole: if the company invested in Brazil, or to obtain permanent residency, the acquisition of land will no longer be restricted.Subsequently, the United States, Europe, Japan or have permanent resident status through the establishment of the company, purchasing land in Brazil.
Has obtained permanent residency in Brazil, Chen roots, buy land with local bonds.
According to the "Brazil-pass" the Chinese people to buy land in Brazil only in recent years become hot.
Two years ago, the Brazilian World Cup and Olympic Games host city, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and other major cities around the price of land rose in some areas almost doubled, but prices did not stop the enthusiasm of Chinese people to buy land.
"While the Brazilian government on the" Sales Order "repeated additions and modifications to purchase land that can still find ways to buy newspaper ads to sell the land so high." Root appears in Chen, the Brazilian government is no way to restrict foreigners to buy land, the main reason Brazil is sparsely populated, resource-rich land too, "adds a buyer's market."
"Only 30 yuan per square meter"
From Brazil "Taobao," Chen root ad to find land sale, the conversion price, it feels strange: the 110 acres of land, worth about 32 million yuan, 30 yuan per square meter.
Many Chinese to buy land in Zhejiang.

Chen wanted to buy a piece of the root area is located near Sao Paulo, about 50 km from the city center. Although the price of land over the last several years, but on average it is still very cheap.
"A small farm of about 4,000 square meters, in which we grow good flowers and trees, dug a small pond, the land has a house, in total about 400 thousand yuan. If the light to buy land and then it will be cheaper. " Chen said it hoped the investment, but to buy the land for leisure holiday break.
Chen print root, Brazilian investment in land, not much, but added that many foreigners, the interest rates of deposits in Brazil may be the reason. "Currently, banks in Brazil is about one year interest rate on deposits of 12%, cash in banks, much smaller than the risk of waiting for recovery of land."
CHEN Gen introduction, after buying land in Brazil, but also to pay at least 1% of land tax. If the increase in land prices is not good, plus taxes and fees and management costs, vacancy costs, there may be a loss. To this end, Chen Zhejiang Association of root more than once suggested, to buy investments to be prudent.
Brazilians do not feel there is an exception to purchase
Zhejiang to buy land in Brazil, the local owners, the land market in Brazil is only a summary of hot.
In addition to the individual requirements of investment to buy Chinese companies to buy land in Brazil is very hot, but raises a number of European and American media attention.
According to The New York Times reported on May 26, Chongqing Food Group to buy land to plant soybeans in Brazil, and soybeans are sold. The report said the number of farms in the southern states of Brazil belongs.
April 2010, as representatives of Chinese entrepreneurs, Chongqing Food Group President Hu Junlie in Brazil to participate in the "BRIC" meeting in October the same year the group of 80 million mu of cultivated land in Brazil grow soybeans.

Compared with Westerners, Chinese companies and individuals to be newcomers. Japan 100 years ago, engaged in agriculture in Brazil, mainly in northern Brazil, the Dutch development, southern Germany, Poland and development USA, the rest of the region, the Portuguese companies everywhere.
Foreign companies to develop the land is generally more barren. Brazil wasteland many locals do not warm, so a lot of foreign companies to develop, but in a part of the purchase price of the land.
Now, almost all descendants of Brazilian immigrants, indigenous small, relatively open to the public's mind, the residents felt nothing unusual for the land purchase.
Brazil introduced that restrict the purchase of speculation
within the government started paying attention to the behavior of large-scale purchase of land. Some media reported that over the past three years, 30% of land available in Brazil, bought by foreigners, so that the results of those who raised concerns internally.
Last year, the Brazilian government initiated a large-scale comprehensive statistical situation of foreigners to buy land in Brazil, a move interpreted as restrictions on foreigners buying land in the action.

According to regulations, foreigners bought over 100 acres of land, must be approved by Congress. Before the limits approved by Congress, is 5000 hectares. Moreover, the new law expressly provides that every purchase of land by foreigners can not exceed 25% of rural land available.

Brazil is not for the Chinese Embassy
Soybeans in Brazil to buy land in Chongqing Food Group Office of a staff member told this reporter that the company bought land there in the issuance abroad, but some media reports, there are many untruths.

Yean Ping, said that Western countries often use overseas activities of Chinese companies, making China the "Agriculture" and other untruths, similar reports have appeared many times before, so it's no surprise.
Embassy of Brazil in the department of political officials interviewed said Henry, from the government side, "have not concerned themselves with the Chinese people to buy land," some of the limitations of measures to buy land, not against China and the other one a particular country, "We welcome Chinese investment in Brazil."
According to Chen describes the root of foreigners to buy land in Brazil are mainly three categories: personal investments, growing agricultural and industrial production.
Comparison of the Brazilian government to encourage foreign direct investment companies set up factories. If foreign firms out of production in Brazil and then shipped back to Brazil, sales of the product, the tax burden will be very high. In order to attract foreign companies in local production, Brazil will reduce the tax burden by about 20%. This increase in reducing corporate profits tax, but also to address local employment. Therefore, the Brazilian government is willing to hire companies to buy land plants.
