The recent presidential visit by Dilma Rousseff to Washington at the end of June defined a new momentum in the Brazil-U.S. relationship and paved the way forward. The Brazil Council’s policy asks in the area of trade, investment, tax, and sectors of great potential such as defense were at the center of the presidential agenda, and many of them made significant progress, showcasing that the private sector can influence governments to redefine the “rules of engagement” for a stronger and deeper bilateral relationship.
Looking forward, unleashing the economic benefits in each of these areas will require the cooperation of both nations’ leaders and business communities. By working together, we can grow the U.S.-Brazil bilateral relationship into a bolder and more dynamic partnership that can drive growth and create opportunities for our societies.
The Plenary is the top forum for substantive public-private discussions on the Brazil-U.S. economic and commercial relationship and provides a unique opportunity for both sections of the Brazil Council to meet.
