From the Document: "The United States and Brazil engage regularly in a number of formal dialogues and working groups on economic issues. These consultations are contributing to two-way goods and services trade that exceeded $100 billion in 2013. The United States has foreign direct investment in Brazil totaling roughly $80 billion and Brazilian foreign direct investment in the United States is rising, reaching approximately $14 billion in 2012. The U.S. Secretary of the Treasury recently visited Brazil for discussions on bilateral and global economic and financial issues, reflecting the two countries' increasingly shared stake in promoting strong, sustainable, and balanced global economic growth and job creation. In May, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation visited Brazil to meet with Brazilian counterparts on land, air, and waterway transportation cooperation that can facilitate trade and travel. The continued exchange of high-level official delegations underscores the two countries' commitment to building a mutually-beneficial economic partnership."
