January 23, 2019 - 9:00 am

1030 15th St NW, 12th Floor
Washington, DC

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

This event is in partnership with the Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI).


Jair Bolsonaro was quick out of the gate following his January 1 inauguration, announcing various controversial decrees along the way. Now, as his government takes the helm of Latin America’s largest democracy, the former army captain and his government will be charged with proposing consequential reforms and sending them to Congress. With all eyes on the new administration, what can Brazilians and the world expect from the region's newest leader?


How will Bolsonaro's administration approach the Brazilian economy, attract foreign investment, advance anti-corruption efforts and strengthen the US-Brazil relationship? And what effects will his proposals have on the region and beyond?


Join the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. EST, for a conversation on what’s on the horizon for Brazil.
