Economic perspectives for Brazil in 2020
Our Senior Fellow, Otaviano Canuto, who previously served as a vice president and Executive Director of the World Bank, Executive Director of the International Monetary Fund, and as a vice president at the Inter-American Development Bank, will give a presentation on economic perspectives for Brazil in 2020, to a floor of scholars and students from Columbia University. The roundtable will take at Columbia University, New York, on Wednesday 29th, January.
This year can be a decisive one for Brazil’s transition to a more robust and sustainable growth path – but only if the government commits to fiscal and structural reform. If Brazil’s leaders fail to take this opportunity to lay the foundations for long-term prosperity, it may not be long before the economy stalls again.
