A new and exclusive index of the Brazilian economy, along with a survey of small business owners in Florida, are slated to be released in May courtesy of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce through collaboration with IBOPE Inteligência, a premier market research and polling firm.

The Brazilian National Index of Consumer Expectations (BNICE) is a direct look inside the one of the world’s fastest growing economic powers, shining a light on the factors which shape Brazil’s economy, thus impacting those conducting business in Latin America from the US.

“This index, which includes the voices of about 2,000 Brazilians each month, shows the macro economic factors that influence one of the world’s most vibrant economies,” said IBOPE Inteligência US CEO Kjell de Orr. “We are proud to be working with the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce to bring this valuable information to the multitude of businesses that rely on trade with our South American neighbors.”

And while it is important to look to South America for economic news, the state of Florida small businesses is the other component to an overall economic picture provided by the Chamber and IBOPE Inteligência. The tracking survey of small business owners gives an impression of what those owners are expecting from the economy in the coming months, and how it may impact their operations in the future.

“This collaboration affords the Chamber strategic insight into two critical sectors of South Florida’s economy, international and small business. While economic challenges will indeed remain, the prospect that small businesses are showing momentum in 2012 is an encouraging step,” said Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce President/ CEO Barry E. Johnson. “Additionally, the Brazilian index will serve as a resource for companies who may be looking overseas for expansion or trend indicators that may help shape future business.”
