In spite of fiscal uncertainty, weak consumer confidence and low productivity and growth, Brazil remains the largest economy in Latin America and an economic powerhouse. Strategic sectors continue to offer opportunity and boost the country’s share of global trade. Additionally, business is playing an active role in decarbonisation efforts, supporting the government’s shift to strengthening Brazil’s environmental and climate agenda. What is next for the country’s growth trajectory and how can it be best positioned in the current uncertain economic and geopolitical context? How can Brazil benefit from the transition to a greener, cleaner and more inclusive society?
The Financial Times is delighted to present its second annual Brazil Summit, which will explore the country’s outlook following one of the most consequential presidential elections in decades.The agenda will explore the challenges and opportunities of unlocking Brazil’s enormous potential, its place in global affairs and key investment trends.
The power of people coming together is never knowingly underestimated at FT Live, therefore our event will be held in person providing the opportunity to meet and exchange views with like-minded leading business executives, government figures and investors.
