US Forum on Brazil Deals with Election, Resilience and External Shock

José Sérgio Gabrielli, CEO of Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petrobras, will deliver the key opening address at the 4th Annual Brazil Investment Forum in Miami.

The forum, organized by LatinFinance, is designed to advance discussion on the opportunities and challenges in Brazil, one of the world’s most dynamic economies.

According to LatinFinance, Brazil is firmly back on track for a period of brisk economic growth. With lofty external surpluses despite a strong real, a falling Brazil risk premium, and lively capital inflows supporting booming capital markets, solid initiatives for the reduction of external debt and talk of near imminent investment grade, the outlook has rarely been so positive.

But challenges remain if these successes are to become the platform from which Brazil can leap to a new era of sustainable economic growth and broader prosperity.

Brazil: Back On Track aims to examine and explain Brazil’s ongoing success and to place it in a wider context of medium-term challenges.

Among the topics to be explored in the forum are: the up-coming elections and the implications for pending reforms, the evolution of the capital markets, the return of an equity culture and the implications for corporate governance, the risks of external shocks and Brazil’s resilience, the leading role of the private sector in Brazil and the long-standing challenge of infrastructure development.

Among the confirmed speakers in this investment forum are José Carlos Grubisich, CEO of Braskem; Constantino de Oliveira Jr., CEO of Gol Linhas Aéreas; Bernardo Hees, CEO of ALL-Logí­stica; Bernard Mencier, President of BNP Paribas; Dario Epstein, President of Sur Investments; Rômulo Dias, Director of Bradespar; and Walter Molano, Partner at BCP Securities, among others.
