|Challenges for Brazilian leadership in the 21st Century Global Economy|
IMD has the pleasure to invite you to our Business Forum:
Please note that this event is by invitation only.
There is a major shift in the global economic paradigm that is considerably in Brazil's favour. In other words, on the basis of comparative advantage Brazil is poised to play an ever greater role in the global market economy. This shift in globalisation, however, must by no means be considered to be on auto-pilot, let alone irreversible. There is and will be strong resistance among the older trading powers to the emergence of the new actors, as can be witnessed in the stalling of the Doha Round, as there are also conditions in Brazil itself which impose their own handicaps. A 21st century with Brazil playing a leading role would make for a better world. What are the domestic, regional and global conditions that are necessary for this scenario to materialise and especially what are the synergies between the domestic, regional and global conditions that must be sought?
These are the issues and questions that Jean-Pierre Lehmann, professor of international political economy at IMD, founding director of the Evian Group forum and think tank on global economic governance and development, and prominent participant in numerous international public policy forums, will address.
