As the daily headlines make clear, Brazil is in a political and economic crisis; and with Brazil as the largest economy in South America and eighth largest in the world, these crises are having direct implications for American and foreign companies doing business there, as well as for the global economy as a whole.
Moreover, the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio, while intended to showcase Brazil’s many attractions and boost the country’s image, are now mired in allegations of mismanagement and fan indifference.
Please join us for an executive briefing on developments in Brazil, prospects for political reform, and implications of the crisis for the dynamic political, law enforcement, and regulatory environment. This seminar will provide analysis and insight for U.S. and foreign businesses operating in, or contemplating entering, the Brazilian marketplace, including practical ways companies in Brazil can protect their interests and reduce their risk of violating anticorruption and other laws.
