International Board of FGV participates in mission to China
The International Relations Manager of FGV's International Board, professor Eduardo Marques, traveled on a mission to China and participated in two events: the workshop 2012 Economic Policy Dialogue among Emerging Economies Policy and Strategic Research Institutions and the course China: Future Challenges. Joint Seminar on International Public Administration.
The first event was organized by China Institute for Reform and Development (ICDR) and funded by GTZ/German Government, and it happened in the city of Haikou, on Hainan Island. Various think tanks from the BRICS countries attended the event, where, in principle, a cooperation network was set up to be formalized next year. The researchers Fernando Veloso and Maurice Canedo, from IBRE, presented lectures at the seminar.
The second event was a course held at the School of Public Policy and Management (MPPS), of Tsinghua University, co-organized with the Brazil China Institute (IBRACH).
The mission was especially productive given the current economic and political boiling situation in China, which promotes a vigorous movement towards the reform of the state and the economic development of the market.
