His controversial comments on women and his praise of his country's former dictatorship may have left detractors fearful of a Jair Bolsonaro presidency in Brazil, but so far investors do not appear to be among them.

Brazil and South Africa share membership of the important BRICS and IBSA formations.

Bolsonaro defeated his Leftist opponent Fernando Haddad of the Workers' Party 55.5 per cent against 44.5 per cent of the votes with 96 per cent of ballots counted. Thousands of Bolsonaro supporters cheered and set off fireworks outside his home in Rio de Janeiro´s beachfront Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood as his victory was announced.

Bolsonaro, with a proudly authoritarian approach that attracted Brazilian voters tired of crime and corruption, will have to find a way to fit into the groupings of developing countries.

Flying in the face of that, Bolsonaro's proposed policies are a declaration of war against not just Brazil's population and environment, but on the world's ability to mitigate climate change. New rules will boost investment in infrastructure, he told reporters. He said he was committed to fiscal discipline and called for the early elimination of the federal government´s budget deficit.

"There are a lot of parallels and I think a lot of opportunities for a much improved US-Brazil relationship", Roberts said.

He and his advisors have begun fleshing out the staffing of his administration and setting out key priorities, including a fast-tracked pension reform that has faced resistance in Congress.

German diplomatic circles are equally blasé and are awaiting Mr. Bolsonaro's first moves as president. He will oversee the transition from Rio this week and fly to the capital Brasilia next week, Lorenzoni added.

Bolsonaro, who rode a wave of anti-establishment anger to victory in Sunday's election, wants to slash the number of ministries from 29 to 15, in the name of reining in public spending.
