'More people are investing in Brazil'

The global power league of economies has not changed for years.

The United States, China and Japan are still top of the chart - but in the wake of the eurozone debt crisis, France, Germany and the UK, are being out-classed.

Although its economy grew slightly less than expected in 2011, official figures from Brazil show that it is about to overtake the UK to become the world's sixth largest economy.

Brazil is enjoying a boom because of high food and oil prices, which has led to rapid economic growth.

Will Landers, BlackRock Latin American Fund says "more and more people are investing in Brazil".
