Brazil’s global influence is growing, says BBC

Demand for property in Brazil could be set to rise following the results of a recent survey.

According to a poll by the BBC World Service, the number of people who view Brazil as having a positive influence in the world has risen from 40 per cent last year, to 49 per cent this year. The BBC has said that this is the largest increase in popularity by any of the 16 nations that are polled.

Overall, the ratings for 13 of the nations increased from last year, with the UK being ranked as the second most popular country worldwide. South Africa, host of the 2010 World Cup, also posted a significant rise compared to last year.

GlobeScan chairman Doug Miller said: "The growing credibility of middle powers is the story this year, especially Brazil and South Africa."
