In Brazil, the discussion about the guidelines of industrial policy again moved to the fore when the Industrial, Technological and Foreign Trade Policy (PITCE) was introduced in 2003. The appreciation of Brazilian real that began in 2008 (and interrupted briefly between September, 2008 and April, 2009) combined with the worldwide economic crisis, raised the discussion to a position of prominence on the public policy agenda. The overall objective of the study is to offer a reflection on the issue of industrial policy in terms of its goals and instruments that contribute to the discussion of Brazilian policy.
