ABSTRACT
In this article the author urges the U.S. and Brazil to expand their trade relationship. He says that Brazil must expand its domestic market for its increasing production of biofuels, for instance, while strengthening its research and development capacity. The U.S. needs business partners capable of providing reliable and secure energy. Brazil's alternative fuel technology as well as its growing crude oil production make it an ideal partner.
