President Dilma Rousseff's June 30 visit to the United States comes amid significant transformations in Brazil and in US-Latin American relations overall. Dilma is looking for big wins while the United States sees a moment to jumpstart relations with a hemispheric leader. Will this lay the foundation for moving from working-level collaboration to bold, far-reaching cooperation? How would a significant agreement on an issue like innovation be a catalyst for economic opportunity in both countries?
Join the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and the Brazil-US Business Council for a preview of the visit with top decision-makers in the bilateral agenda. The Arsht Center will launch its latest Brazil report, US-Brazil Relations: A New Beginning? How to Strengthen the Bilateral Agenda, in which our senior nonresident Brazil fellow, Ricardo Sennes, proposes specific ways to advance cooperation in investment, trade, education, and technology and innovation.
