Brazil's deep economic and political plight is not the only story. Crisis begets opportunity, and this is increasingly the case in Brazil's international commercial posture. The economic downfall has also meant better global trade results and a new strength to Brazilian exports, injecting new life into the private sector. What steps should be taken to make Brazil a more attractive trading partner going forward? And will this provide a much-needed economic boost?

Join us for a discussion with Brazilian Secretary of Foreign Trade Daniel Godinho and prominent business leaders on the shifting trade winds coming out of Brasilia and the larger economic implications. The event will mark the launch of our #WhyBrazilNow series, an initiative to highlight emerging opportunities in a country in the midst of transformation. A wine and cheese networking reception will precede the event
