                                    The Bolsonaro Administration Scorecard

    Brazil’s sluggish economic growth will pick up smartly this year, provided President Jair Bolsonaro’s government implements promised budget-tightening reforms and helps expand the private sector. He needs to maneuver through Congress and get the approval of some of the fundamental reforms needed to address the fiscal  risks and improve the competitiveness of the Brazilian economy. Can the political uncertainty around the implementation of reforms derail the economic recovery?

    This stellar lineup of distinguished speakers will share their views on the prospects for the Brazilian economy in 2019 and its impact on the market and business investment.
