Energy: Brazil and the BRICS

Countries base their economies on the agro, industry, services and information technology sectors.

The more developed the more towards information technology. The least, remaining in the agro. And the middle platoon is in industry and services.

Brazil has a good part of its GDP linked to agriculture. It is a poor country, which still struggles for a relevant part of its population to be able to feed themselves on a daily basis.

The graph shows the comparison of energy costs paid by the residential and corporate sectors of the BRICS - a group of countries that is considered by the market as "developing".

The harsh reality: we are at the bottom of the market in competitiveness, making it difficult for us to migrate to the most advanced platoon of countries.
