Brazil is governed under the 1988 constitution as amended. The president, who is elected by popular vote for a four-year term (and may serve two terms), is both head of state and head of government. There is a bicameral legislature consisting of an upper Federal Senate and a lower Chamber of Deputies. The 81 senators are elected for eight years and the 513 deputies are elected for four years. The president may unilaterally intervene in state affairs. Administratively, the country is divided into 26 states and one federal district (Brasília); each state has its own governor and legislature. The main political parties are the Brazilian Democratic Movement party, the Liberal Front party (now known as the Democrats party), the Democratic Labor party, the Brazilian Social Democracy party, and the Workers party.
Mexico’s economy was more resilient to external headwinds at the beginning of the year. Preliminary data show that GDP growth picked up from 2.5% year-on-year in Q4 2015 to 2.7% in Q1. The result, which exceeded expectations, was driven by faster growth in all three of the main sectors of the economy. Agriculture and services expanded robustly in Q1, while growth in the industrial sector was surprisingly faster, considering cutbacks in oil production and a slowdown in the U.S. economy in Q1. Moreover, manufacturing gauges in April suggest that the sector is off to a positive start to Q2. On a negative note, consumer confidence slipped further in April, suggesting that sentiment is losing traction, despite strong consumption fundamentals. In response to Moody’s warning in March that it could decide to downgrade Mexico’s rating, the government announced new expenditure cuts together with the guidelines for next year’s budget.
Brazil has vast mineral wealth, including iron ore (it is the world's largest producer), tin, quartz, chrome ore, manganese, industrial diamonds, gem stones, gold, nickel, bauxite, uranium, and platinum. Offshore petroleum and natural gas deposits discovered in the early 21st cent. could also make the nation a significant oil and gas producer, but development has been slow and below expectations. There is extensive food processing, and the leading manufacturing industries produce textiles, shoes, chemicals, steel, aircraft, motor vehicles and parts, and machinery. Most of Brazil's electricity comes from water power, and it possesses extensive untapped hydroelectric potential, particularly in the Amazon basin.
