Brazilian Chancellor in the U.S. Drumming Up Business for Brazil

The Brazilian Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, addressed a Brazilian and American business audience, today, at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, in Washington, on business in Brazil.

The expectation is for the meeting to generate investments and partnerships in various economic sectors, such as environment, education, and science and technology.


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce was created in 1912 to ferret out investment opportunities around the globe. The meeting was organized by the Brazil – U.S. Business Council.


At the beginning of the afternoon, the Brazilian chancellor has a working lunch scheduled with the U.S. trade representative, Robert Portman.


Amorim was received on Monday, September 26, in the U.S. capital by the Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice. He also met with the deputy secretary of State, Robert Zoellick.
