Hulled J'ri'ss Stall Corresiioiiilenl RIO DE JANEIRO, March 21 i UP (--Students of economy anil business lenders believe thai Bin- t y.n may be at. threshold of n complete transl'onnaiion ot its economic life. •Hiclr opinion is based on the ir«id of events ia Bnixlltan economy since the stint of the war in Kiu-ope nnrl particularly the ex- | pressed intentions of and .steps • taken by the government, lo develop' industrially as well as agriculturally. i In contrast to the economic e>:-' liansiun of the United Stales, which was first largely agricultural ' "nc! ihen 'industrial, Brazil is undertaking a double-barreled program of developing its industry while .simultaneously perfecliiij; its agricultural expansion. Brazil long has been considered one of the riches',, nations in the world in undeveloped natural resources. Brazilians have long looker! to Ihe development of those resources. Consequently one of the keynotes, of Brar.ilinn economy now is the development, of heavy industries, particularly steel, whereas in the post, innjor attention was given to agricultural growth. Research Croup Named The full giowlli of the government is being thrown behind this program. Only a few days ago President Varyas provided for the appointment of a special committee to .study the establishment of a local company for the development of the sleel industry. The company is to be financed hv the government and private capita). The government obviously realizes the tremendous task it is undertaking, but also obviously Is determined to overcome all obstacles. The significant thing is thai Brazil, with mnple water power to generate electrical energy, Is evincing a determination to' expand Industrially. Perhaps tlie greatest needs for industrial development are capital, capital goods and skilled labor. This country, however, lias tlie example of other industrial nations from which to profit in its methods of dealing with such problems. JHIJ ling the Ijnd points of other systems and adopting their fiobd points. textile Industry Developed Brazil already 'hiis made Important, steps toward developing Us own textile Industry and at present Is exporting some collon textiles to other South American countries, particularly Argentina. The purpose of ihe government is to provide an expanding market at home and abroad for its increasing cotton production. Al Ihe same time the government, is carefully watching its foreign commerce with an eye lo further expansion-of exports and to finding new markets (o replace some of the old ones last, at least temporarily, due to the war in Europe. A special committee, Ihe Federal Council on Morei»n Commerce, is studying every phase of inteinational trade. Actually, (lie war in Europe so far has neither affected Brazil adversely nor particularly favorably in respect to total volume and total vplue of exports, although during 1039 it did have a favorable balance of 5,500000 pounds sterling (gold), where as for 1938 it had only a negligible balance of of which O[>:il l.ove was ihiiirmaii.

The former represented 40 per cent of all exports (in value) in 193D. and the latter 20 per cent. Bui Brazil al::o is looking forward to the re-establishment of its former predominance as a source of crude rubber. In view of the uncertainty, due lo the war in Europe, of other fourcc.? of rubber for the United States, Brazil believes II may be able to interest the world's jjreal- esl consumer of rubber again In its market. Careful study is being made of means to re-establish this former great Brazilian industry. From both (.ho ccoomic as well as the political viewpoints.
