U.S.-Brazil Defense Industry Dialogue

The second U.S.-Brazil Defense Industry Dialogue (DID) meeting will focus on advancing the themes of Commercial Partnership and Industrial and Regulatory Policy. As we build upon the success of previous DID engagements, which focused on Export Control & Compliance and Mutual Recognition themes, we will use the second DID to explore possible avenues for future commercial partnership, learn from existing and strong business to business partnerships, and define the building blocks towards a binational program.

The government to business dialogue will continue with the strategic, long-term vision of developing a binational program that elevates both private sectors in meeting an operational need. This edition of the DID will consist of crisp, interactive dialogues, compelling all parties to play an active role in contributing to the discussion.

The meeting includes invitations to key U.S. and Brazilian government and industry decision makers, including officials from the following U.S. and Brazilian government entities:

• Department of Defense
• Department of Commerce
• Department of State
• Ministry of Defense
• Ministry of Foreign Affairs
• Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services
• Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation & Communication
