A Brazilian Google?

Brazil has launched a multimedia portal. This new Government website, groups all the information and services offered by the State that can be useful both for residents and foreigners. It is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese, and was considered by President Lula as a "Google Brazileño”.

The site offers content for different audiences (employees, students, entrepreneurs, press and tourists interested in visiting Brazil), but the Goverment intends to differentiate them more, for instance, according to other audiences: children, elderly, government officials and women. Moreover, the site also offers other type of division, this time according to the user interest, for example health, education, science and technology, culture, economics, sport, tourism, geography, history and environment.

President Lula said, "I think today we reached a new communication level with the Brazilian society. We are offering through the Internet all the information and the services that we have ".
