All eyes are on Brazil domestically and internationally as Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva prepares to take office on January 1, 2023. As the transition team works to further define the agenda of the incoming administration, questions remain on what the new government’s priorities will be and how the president-elect will deliver on his campaign promises.

What are the economic, environmental, and foreign policy priorities for the first 100 days of President Lula? How will the incoming administration manage expectations in a globally challenging geopolitical and economic context? In what ways will Brazil’s next government work with the international community on global issues such as climate change and food security?

Join us on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. ET (11h to 12h BRT), for a public virtual discussion on Lula’s first 100 days in office.
