Brazil to capitalise on sporting events

The Government and Embratur, its national tourist board, have launched “Plano Aquarela 2020”, which specifically looks at the opportunities arising from hosting the 2014 Fifa World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games, due to be held in Rio de Janeiro. Brazil has set a target of 11.1m annual foreign visitors by 2020 and wants to increase the income generated from them by 304%, to $17.6bn.
