16/07/2010- Recent headlines concerning Brazilian land and potential ownership restrictions for overseas buyers will not affect main stream investors seeking residential or beachfront land in Brazil. The government is working on plans to protect agricultural land in order to keep food production under the control of Brazilians.

Government spokeswoman Denise Mantovani has confirmed published remarks made by Brazilian minister Guilherme Cassel, who said that President Lula da Silva had asked ministers to tighten laws on foreign ownership of land.
Cassel claimed that the President’s concerns were due to a desire to keep food production under Brazilian control.
