Brazil's government

Brazil's leader is Dilma Rousseff. Her term is 4 years.

Brazil's type of government is federal. One issue in their government is unemployment rate is getting higher, and it keeps on going up. They cannot find a way to fix it.

Mexico's 3 trading partners

Mexico's 3 trading partners are the United States, Canada, and China. Mexico's #1 export is machinery. Mexico's #1 import is vehicles from the US.

Mexico's literacy rate is 93.96. And Mexico's GDP is 1.261 trillion.

Brazil's Environmental concerns

Brazil's environmental concern is deforestation. More than 230,000 acres of the Amazon Rainforest has been destroyed or cut down since 1970.

I think that the people who have been cutting down these trees need to reduce on the amount they cut down. They have recently been trying to do this. An example is In an article I read which says, “This success demonstrates the enormous potential of reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation as well as conserving and re-growing tropical forests.” So overall, Brazil has reduced on the amount they’re cutting down.

Mexico's Physical Features

The Central Plateau takes up most of northern and central Mexico.

It starts at the United States border in to the north to the volcanic belt in the south. And is approximately 5,988 ft long.

The coastal area is desert land. The western shore of the country meets mountains, and the length is 3,400 km.
