In the Eve of Bush’s Visit, Brazil Wants Closer Dialogue with US

Five new instruments of dialogue, contact, and exchange between Brazil and the United States, in the fields of science and technology, health, environment, education, and the promotion of racial equality, will be launched on November 6, when US president George W. Bush will be visiting Brazil.

The announcement was made Monday, October 10, by the Brazilian ambassador to the United States, Roberto Abdenur, at the American Chamber of Commerce of Rio de Janeiro.

The diplomat expects these instruments to achieve the same success as the work groups formed after president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s visit to the United States, in June, 2003, in the areas of economic growth promotion, energy, and agriculture.

"I have been pleased to observe the positive evolution of these contacts. These three areas are on the right path," Abdenur affirmed.

"The idea is for us to move ahead with the inauguration of new instruments of dialogue, at least in these five areas, and maybe something else of interest to both sides," he added, hinting the possibility, which has yet to be confirmed, of some event with an economic-entrepreneurial connotation during Bush’s visit.

Abdenur said he believes that "it will be a profitable visit in terms of expanding the instruments of dialogue," even though the US president’s stay is expected to last only two days, on his way back from the meeting of heads of State of the Americas in Mar del Plata, Argentina.

The ambassador also referred to the need to intensify the bilateral political dialogue. "It is necessary to raise the Brazil-United States dialogue and make it even denser."
