Since taking office, the administration of Jair Bolsonaro has pledged to open up the country's economy, to reduce barriers to investment and to ease the cost of doing business in Brazil. With eyes tightly locked on the United States for new opportunities, what are the practical next steps for strengthening the bilateral relationship? And how can the two countries most effectively work together? As President Jair Bolsonaro prepares for his first visit to Washington, DC, join the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Thursday, February 28, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. (EST) for a conversation on Brazil’s foreign policy approach to the United States, with a focus on trade and investment.
