Growth challenges in Brazil and China discussed at meeting
FGV’s International Intelligence Unit (NPII) welcomed an official delegation from the State Research Office, an agency of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China, on September 17. The meeting was an opportunity to share ideas and information about China and Brazil, encouraging learning and the mutual exchange of experiences. The meeting’s other goal was to strengthen NPII’s relations with Chinese research institutions, in addition to the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), enabling the engagement in future initiatives for cooperation and joint projects.
The meeting focused on aspects of the current situation of Brazil and China, its challenges and the reforms required to maintain growth and eradicate poverty in the different contexts in which each country tries to overcome the “middle-income trap”.
The NPII was represented by its Director, professor Renato Galvão Flôres Junior, and Leonardo Paz Neves, an International Intelligence Analyst from the NPII. On the Brazilian side, the meeting was also attended by Ambassador Luiz Augusto de Castro Neves, President of the Brazil-China Business Center (CEBC) and Vice President Emeritus of the Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI). Professor Evandro de Carvalho, Director of the Center for China Studies of FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio), also participated in the meeting.
