The United States is “strongly committed” in support of Brazil’s bid to join the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in São Paulo on Tuesday. Ross met with business leaders; he is due to meet government officials in Brasília later in the week. He said, “President Trump is committed to a strong and dynamic relationship with Brazil.” He said both governments will be working on trade, investment and trade facilitation measures in the coming months. Earlier Tuesday, in Washington, Trump told reporters that his administration is ready to work on a free trade agreement with Brazil. Trump said, “We are going to work on a free trade agreement with Brazil. Brazil is a big trading partner. They charge us a lot of tariffs, but other than that we love the relationship.” Business leaders in São Paulo presented Ross with a list of ten proposals designed to improve U.S.-Brazilian economic relations. The proposals touch on trade, taxation, investment and other themes.
