The Brazilian government currently has approximately $ 300 billion recorded as international reserves in the balance sheet of the Central Bank. The accumulation of this amount was given by successive surpluses in international trade (exports values greater than imports) and the inflow of foreign investments in the country .When the dollars enter the country due to exports , they are the property of exporting firms. When you enter through investments in stocks, for example, they belong to those who sold the shares to international investors. When you enter through investments in bank securities , they belong to the banks that sold such securities.
