According to GlobalData’s job analytics the macroeconomic outlook for Brazil is a dominating theme in the aerospace and defence job sector – it has risen at a 56% growth rate during the last four months.

The growth of this theme also coincides with the increased activity of EDGE Group, a United Arab Emirates-based defence conglomerate, in Brazil in the same period.

Notably, the Foreign Direct Investment theme – which has grown by 37% – compliments the growing amount the Group has invested in Brazil’s growing defence industrial base.

The Group met with government officials – all of whom pledged their support for EDGE’s plans to grow in the region through partnership, knowledge exchange, Research & Development, co-operation, and the co-development of advanced solutions across the aerospace, smart weapons, unmanned and autonomous platforms, and naval domains.

Lucas Ferraz International Affairs Secretary of the Sao Paulo state government explained the enormity of EDGE’s investment in this region alone: “The sheer pace of advancement, particularly here in the state of Sao Paulo, has enabled us to become the continent’s leading centre of aerospace manufacturing.”

Only four days before this, the Group formed a strategic agreement with the Department of Aerospace, Science and Technology in the Air Force of Brazil. The partnership will explore opportunities to jointly develop projects in the air and space, smart weapons, and unmanned and autonomous platform domains, as well as other areas.
