This will be the last episode of the Amazon Dialogues. This series set out to discuss the role of economic development policies for Brazil and current instruments for attracting investment to the country’s Amazon region, as well as addressing Brazilian regional inequalities, appraising public policies aimed at mitigating these inequalities and explaining the role of the Brazilian Amazon and the Manaus Free Trade Zone in this process.
