The news from Brazil seems worse every day. The economy keeps slowing and the Petrobras corruption scandal continues to dominate the political landscape. President Dilma Rousseff’s approval ratings dropped to unprecedented lows in March amidst protests that brought two million Brazilians to the streets. Can Dilma turn this economic and political crisis around? How can she regain the trust of Brazilians and the business community? Will she be able to implement the reforms necessary to address the enormous political and economic challenges facing Brazil?

Join us for a call with on-the-ground experts in Brazil who will provide an insider’s perspective on the current political situation and the future outlook for the country.
