As the global community continues to grapple with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Atlantic Council is open for business. All business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please view a statement from our President and CEO.
As the United States and Brazil continue negotiations toward a chapter-specific trade agreement, Brazil’s commercial relations with key US states, like Texas, will be directly impacted in the event of a deal. In addition to Texas, Florida and Iowa are among Brazil’s top commercial partners in the United States, with Brazil being among the states’ top five export markets.
How might trade talks develop as we look to the next presidential term? What would a chapter-specific bilateral trade agreement mean for US-Brazil economic engagement at the state level? What measures should be taken to deepen commerce between Brazil and US states and in key industries such as steel, energy, and agriculture?
Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, in partnership with Squire Patton Boggs and the Brazil-Texas Chamber of Commerce, on Monday, October 5, 2020, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EDT (1:00 to 2:00 p.m. CDT), for a conversation on US-Brazil trade relations, particularly diving into Brazil’s commercial partnerships at the US state level ahead of the United States elections.
