The president-elect of Paraguay, Santiago Peña, gave a speech at Fundação Getulio Vargas in Sao Paulo on Wednesday, July 26. He presented his future vision for Paraguay and discussed the importance of relations with Brazil. The opening remarks were given by FGV’s president FGV, Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal. The event was coordinated by FGV’s International Affairs Division (FGV DINT).
The meeting was part of a series of scheduled events for the president-elect and his ministerial entourage in Brazil, aimed at building support in the markets and strengthening Paraguay’s important political and commercial relations with Brazil. He will take office on August 15.
During his speech, Peña presented his perspectives on management of the Paraguayan economy over the next five years, highlighting his vision for the country within the Mercosul trade bloc, the opportunities for industrial integration with Brazil and the potential for joint development in areas such as renewable energy and infrastructure.
The lecture was a significant moment to strengthen ties between the two nations and discuss key issues for the region’s economic future. The event was attended by academics, Latin American diplomats, representatives of industrial and trade organizations, journalists and students.
FGV has a long history of cooperation with Paraguay, especially in the education and training of its managers in strategic areas for the country’s development. Brazil, as an important regional partner, and FGV, as a leading teaching and research institution, will certainly play a key role in this joint journey toward progress.
