Even as political turmoil keeps hurting Brazil, it hasn't prevented the emergence of great opportunity for foreign investment. In its latest modernization efforts, the Brazilian government has offered 57 new projects to private actors – including the country's most profitable airport, Congonhas; 15 ports; 11 transmission line blocs; and Latin America's biggest power provider, electricity company Eletrobrás.

Is now the right time to bet in Brazil again? Will these privatizations help the country in the long run? And can the political earthquakes shaking Brasília derail the country´s modernization impetus?

Join Brazilian Minister of Planning Dyogo de Oliveira and a distinguished panel of experts on Wednesday, October 11 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am for a timely conversation on how this new wave of privatizations will impact Brazil's transport and energy infrastructure – and what is at stake for citizens, investors, and the future of the country.

*Breakfast & registration start at 8:30 am; the conversation begins promptly at 9 am*

*Registration is required.*
