The Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI) and the Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (Fiesp) signed a cooperation agreement to formulate public policy proposals aimed at resuming growth, development, and the better projection of Brazil to the world. The objective is to promote a critical and interdisciplinary debate on economics. Present at the signing were the president of Fiesp, Josué Gomes da Silva, the CEO of CEBRI, Julia Dias Leite, and the economist André Lara Resende, who coordinates the Political Economy Program at CEBRI, which hosts renowned economists.

The partnership between the institutions will seek institutional and public policy alternatives for Brazil with a long-term vision in various segments of the economy, such as industry, infrastructure, foreign trade, education, technology, among others. Josué Gomes da Silva stressed the importance of this new partnership. "This is an important initiative to generate reflections on the designs of public policies existing in the world, thus contributing to the debate on the path for the country's development", he said.

The president of CEBRI's Board of Trustees, José Pio Borges, highlighted that the agreement is very opportune at a time when Brazil is losing competitiveness and leadership in a more challenging and complex international scenario. "Our objective is to draw a diagnosis for the resumption of the industrial sector in Brazil. In this first quarter of the 21st century, it is clear that Brazil has not been able to catch up with developed countries and, on several fronts, has actually regressed. Brazil has failed to combat both health and environmental inequalities. The country needs growth strategies and a structural change in the economy", highlighted Borges.

Julia Dias Leite drew attention to CEBRI's two recently launched new Programs: Political Economy and Democracy. "The two join CEBRI's 14 thematic programs, which also include Asia, Environment, Energy, and International Trade. In May, the groups will launch policy papers with interdisciplinary proposals and recommendations for the country", Dias Leite pointed out. "The proposal of the Political Economy Program is to find an alternative to a dominant vision in Brazil and in the world, which in recent decades has privileged private economic interests instead of a liberalism that generates true progress and social well-being," André Lara Resende added.
