Brazil and Portugal share a language but the two countries in general pretty much ignore each other.

Portugal is European country with about 3% of its Population being immigrants half of which are from Europe. Brazil is a very diverse country.

Portuguese people are more pessimistic in general Brazilians are more optimistic.
Portugal may ignore Brazil, but for sure: Brazil does not ignore Portugal.
About brazilians being optimistic... it was before the election of Dilma Rousseff as president. Now, brazilians are not only pessimistic but also desperate.

Brazil is a beautiful country no doubt, I say that because there is so little trade between the two countries.

I'm still optimistic, and not even a bit desperate.

The problem in Brazil are entrepreneurs being stupid enough to hold on their investments because they believe the stupid "forecasts" of Empiricus. Everyone with half a brain can notice the sabbotage operation made by that Empiricus company. I wonder who's behind that.

Maybe in terms of trade due to circumstantial reasons, but Portugal in Brazil enjoys special deference about agreements, cooperation and investments. People from Portugal living in Brazil has the same rights and duties of every brazilian citizen.

I don't know any details about rights of Portuguese people or the benefits enjoyed in Brazil athough I find it interesting. I am of Portuguese ancestry, born in Portugal but live in the United States.

Portugal and Brazil have very close ties and share several agreements between them but I doubt a Portuguese citizen would have the same rights as a Brazilian in Brazil.
