The Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI), the Prospectiva Consulting, the Brazil Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Inter-American Dialogue will organize the Seminar Leadership and Responsibility in the New Brazilian International Agenda.
As Brazil is gearing up to elect a new leader, what are the central issues concerning its foreign policy? The country’s international profile has achieved new heights, both economically and politically. However, a new international engagement will demand new commitments that will encompass all the sectors: financial, military, industrial, social and political. On Sept. 23, three panels of experts will assess the new Brazilian leadership in the international agenda and analyze Brazil’s challenges from government and business perspectives. The first panel will focus on the state of Brazil-US bilateral relations. The second panel will examine Brazil’s current and evolving foreign policy, followed by the third panel, on economic leadership – international trade and investments.
Confirmed Speakers: Thomas Shannon - U.S. Ambassador to Brazil; Ernesto Fraga Araujo - Minister, Brazilian Embassy; Denise Gregory - Executive Director, CEBRI; Albert Fishlow - Professor, Columbia University; Donna Hrinak - Senior Director of Latin America Government Affairs, Pepsico Co.; Joel Velasco - Chief Representative for North America, Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA); Ricardo Mendes - Executive Director, Prospectiva Consultoria; Paulo Sotero - Director, Brazil Institute, Woodrow Wilson Center; Peter Hakim - Inter-American Dialogue.
