European Union and Brazil: Challenges and opportunities discussed at international event
The year 2023 began with a wave of change and new commitment in relations between the European Union and Brazil, with the start of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s third presidential term and an expected meeting of key EU and Mercosur negotiators. In this context, FGV Europe is jointly organizing an event called “Brazil Is Back: Unleashing the Potential of EU-Brazil Relations,” together with CEPS, a Brussels-based think tank specializing in European affairs.
This public event will be held on June 22, at 1:30 pm, in hybrid format (in person in Belgium and online on CEPS’ website). The opening remarks will be given by FGV’s president, Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal, while the closing speech will be delivered by the director of FGV Europe, Cesar Cunha Campos.
Speakers from the European Union and Brazil will discuss challenges and opportunities in bilateral economic, trade and investment relations amid a tense geopolitical and geoeconomic context.
Can the EU ensure that its partnership with Brazil will compete with competition from Chinese and American traders and investors? What sector gains will the EU-Mercosur trade agreement generate and what impacts can we expect on agricultural trade? These and other questions will be explored during the event.
The event will also feature talks by Vera Thorstensen (a professor at FGV EESP and the coordinator of the Center for Studies in Global Trade and Investments (FGV CCGI), Marco Aurelio Ruediger (the director of FGV ECMI), Daniel Vargas (the coordinator of the FGV Bioeconomy Observatory and research coordinator of FGV Agro) and Michelle Ratton Sanchez Badin (a professor at the FGV Sao Paulo Law School).
