2020 Investors Virtual Mission: Brasília

Americas Society / Council of the Americas

June 15, 2020 - ,


In the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Council of the Americas adapted its traditional one-day Latin American Cities Conference: Brasília into a high-level virtual mission, comprising eight private virtual meetings with nine officials in Brasília, beginning the week of June 15 and continuing through August. This by-invitation-only mission offers international investors and Brazilian executives a unique opportunity to engage remotely with key officials in the Brazilian government in an off-the-record setting. Among the topics discussed were the country’s efforts to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, the economic recovery plan to promote growth, and the main opportunities for investment in Brazil.
