FGV holds debates on economic development trajectories of Brazil and South Korea
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ International Intelligence Unit (FGV NPII) will hold two webinars about Brazil and South Korea. The first one, on October 14, will be about Economic Development and Global Value Chain Insertion: A View from Brazil and South Korea. This event will debate the two countries’ economic development trajectories, especially in terms of their participation in global value chains. The webinar will be broadcast live as of 10 am, on FGV’s YouTube channel.
The idea behind this event is to discuss future prospects and how the two countries’ experiences may serve as a guide. The event will feature Otaviano Canuto, the director of the Center for Macroeconomics and Development in Washington, D.C.; and Joonkoo Lee, a professor at Hanyang University. The moderator will be Leonardo Paz Neves, a qualitative intelligence analyst at FGV NPII.
On October 26, there will be a second webinar, called Brazil and South Korea: Current Economic Developments, Main Strategies and Insights. The aim is to discuss recent economic reforms in Brazil and South Korea, to understand how each reform affected the respective country’s international participation. Issues related to new trends in global value chains and the two countries’ opportunities and obstacles will also be discussed.
This webinar will feature Renato Baumann, a researcher at the Department for International Economic and Political Studies and Relations, part of the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA); and Joon-ho Lee, a senior researcher at the Korea Small Business Institute (KOSBI). The moderator will once more be Leonardo Paz Neves.
