Former president Michel Temer talks about crisis in Lebanon and international cooperation in webinar
On August 31, former Brazilian president Michel Temer will take part in a webinar called “The Crisis in Lebanon and International Cooperation: Brazil’s Mission to Beirut.” The event, organized by the Group for Research on Infrastructure and Environmental Economics at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV EAESP) and supported by the FGV School of International Relations, will be broadcast live on FGV’s YouTube channel, starting at 10 am.
In an unparalleled initiative, the Brazilian government invited ex-president Michel Temer to lead the humanitarian mission, which took food, medicines and basic medical supplies to Lebanon people affected by the explosion at the start of the month at the port in Beirut, the country’s capital. The incident shocked the world, given its devastating impact on the region, killing hundreds of people and injuring thousands.
In the webinar, the former president will describe how the Brazilian diplomatic mission went. The event will also feature the FGV School of International Relations’ graduate program coordinator, Oliver Stuenkel.
