Infrastructure Investment:

 Brazil's Growth Model?

Guest Speaker: Ricardo U. Sennes

Partner Director, Prospectiva

The situation in Brazil appears dire: both the economy continues to deteriorate and the ruling government is in crisis mode. The patience of Brazil's population appears to be at an end, as massive public protests demonstrate the nation's frustration. 

Despite two decades of gradual privatization, the Brazilian economy is still characterized by state involvement in key sectors. The government's influence is particularly strong in the area of infrastructure, which the ruling federal government is now using as a lever to emerge from the crisis. As evidenced by an ambitious US$50 billion investment plan for capital investment in ports, airports, highways, and roadways, infrastructural modernization is the central theme for the government's efforts to restore voter confidence and reignite the nation's economic growth. 

Join us to listen to Ricardo Sennes, a partner director and an infrastructure expert of Prospectiva who will share his insights into Brazil's current economic and political context as well as discuss some of the unique business opportunities opened up by the government's infrastructure investment plan. Sennes holds a PhD in International Relations and MA in Political Science from the University of São Paulo and a BA degree in Economics from the Catholic University  of São Paulo.

This special luncheon meeting will be held on Thursday, April 14 at 12 pm at the Tampa Club, 101 E. Kennedy Boulevard, 41st floor.
