The importance of the Japanese who came to Brazil is undeniable. However, the descent of Japanese descendants to Japan (the dekasseguis) also has a prominent place.
Currently, about 300,000 dekasseguis are in Japan. About 150,000 of them left the State of São Paulo to work in the country of origin of their parents or grandparents. “In 2005, the dekasseguis sent here $ 1.25 billion. The amount is equal to or greater than international investments announced by large companies, “says the state coordinator of the festivities of the centennial of immigration.
Most of these remittances have the purpose of paying the expenses of family members who live in Brazil. About 30% of the total, however, is earmarked for investment in small businesses or real estate purchases. “This money comes to be spent here and helps to activate our economy,” notes Andrade.

30/11/2006 – Remittances continue to boost economy
Brazilians living abroad will send around US $ 7 billion in remittances to Brazil by the end of this year. Of that total, the dekasseguis are expected to be responsible for $ 2.6 billion, an increase of approximately 15 percent over the previous year, when the numbers hit $ 2.2 billion. The data are part of a study released by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) on the shipments of Latin Americans sent to their countries of origin.
The estimated total to be sent by Latin Americans in 2006, according to the IDB, will be about $ 45 billion, a 50% increase over 2004. Two years ago, a similar study indicated that shipments of totaled US $ 30 billion. The Brazilian index is the largest in South America, but falls well short of the Mexican, for example, which reaches US $ 20 billion.
“They send almost US $ 1,000 per shipment, an amount about ten times higher than the average sent by workers from other countries, which generates an increase in wealth for the country by encouraging employment in the receiving regions of this amount,” explains the IDB sector specialist, Luciano Schweizer. Although the dekassegui movement is far from the peak days, the amount sent by them contributes to the economic development of many municipalities whether in the heating of the real estate sector, whether in the commerce or in other activities.
These resources are channeled in different ways by the various Brazilian regions. According to expert estimates based on the amount sent last year, the approximately 70,000 dekasseguis coming from Paraná, for example, were responsible for an injection of no less than $ 650 million in 2005 in that state. For the regions of Maringá and Londrina were sent about US $ 130 million and US $ 260 million, respectively. Curitiba already had $ 260 million. “These remittances are positive for the country and expressive in the question of job creation, but it is still difficult to measure, in Curtiba, that it is a large city, what is the percentage that this represents for the economic development of the city” , explains the councilman Rui Hara.
According to Marcos Aurélio Gonçalves, from Sebrae Paraná, money covers the most varied sectors of the local economy. (99%), such as video stores, bars and snack bars, clothing, franchises, perfumeries and lottery houses, “said the company.” The first is real estate, followed by investments in the financial market. explains.
In São Paulo, the value reaches US $ 1.25 billion
The State of São Paulo, according to estimates, receives most of the shipments sent from Japan. According to Silmar Pereira, national coordinator of the Dekassegui Entrepreneur Project, it is difficult to establish the exact value, but considering the total figure sent by the dekasseguis and taking into account that more than half of the workers in Japan are from this state, the projection is that this amount reaches US $ 1.25 billion.
PARANÁ: US $ 650 million
Curitiba US $ 260 million
Londrina US $ 260 million
Maringá US $ 130 million
MATO GROSSO DO SUL: US $ 100 million
SAO PAULO: US $ 1.25 billion
FOR: US $ 25 million
