The Second Brazil Business Summit

The Second Brazil Business Summit

The Economist Conferences organizes on July 7th 2011 "The Second Brazil Business Summit", an opportunity to review developments in the Brazilian market following the 2010 presidential elections.

Ifri is a supporting organisation of this event and will be represented by Francoise Nicolas, speaker on the panel: "What are the stakes in developing south to south business with Africa and China?"

Brazil is booming. The economy grew by 7.5% in 2010 and will sustain 5% over the next five years, driven by investment and private consumption. Brazilian firms are expanding rapidly, raising equity at home and acquiring new assets abroad. Large new offshore oil reserves will transform Brazil into a major oil exporter.

But while there is money to be made in Brazil, the savvy international investor needs answers to a series of questions: Will President Rousseff be able to sustain the progress made by Lula? Will she be able to rein in government spending and bring down interest rates and the real, while sustaining growth and controlling inflation?

At The Second Brazil Business Summit you will:

  • Gain insight into the political and financial context after the 2010 elections
  • Learn about how to tap into Brazil's growing consumer market
  • Identify the infrastructure investment opportunities in light of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics
  • Understand how to benefit from the fast-growing energy sector
