Merkel Wouldn’t Listen to Brazil’s Suggestions and This Bothered President Rousseff

Merkel meets Rousseff Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil is not happy with her colleague German chancellor Angela Merkel. Rousseff criticized her for refusing to receive suggestions as to how face the global crisis and on specific issues such as youth unemployment.

Angela Merkel “listens to nobody” when elaborating “a plan to overcome global economic and financial turbulences”, complained president Rousseff according to reports in the São Paulo media.

Ten days ago the two leaders met privately in the framework of the G20 summit in Cannes hosted by French president Nicholas Sarkozy.

During the summit President Rousseff proposed the creation of a world rescue program to help indigence similar to that implemented in Brazil, under the name of “Family Bag” and which basically supports 12 million Brazilian families since 2003.

On her return from France the president in an official speech said that Brazil could be taken as “an example” for such global challenges since the country continues committed to a “growth and wealth distribution” policy as an official strategy to impede that the effects of the crisis impact on Brazil that in 2011 is expected to grow 3.2% according to private estimates compared to the up 7% of last year.

Ms Rousseff said she openly disagrees with governments from the rich countries which are committed to adjustment plans that create further unemployment, particularly among the young population frustrating whole generations.

Both leaders are known for their strong character and no-nonsense attitude to issues, which have caused difficulties in their ministerial cabinets.

They also share being among the most powerful women in the world according to Forbes: Ms Rousseff is the only Brazilian woman in the list and figures in position 22, while the German leader ranks fourth worldwide.
