São Paulo – The British magazine The Economist holds the Brazil Summit 2019, a conference on the future of the Brazilian economy, on October 24 in São Paulo. This will be the third edition of the event, which was held before in 2013 and 2015. Under the name “Back in business?” the conference brings together The Economist’s editors and over 200 government and business leaders to evaluate Brazil’s progress and discuss the country’s social, political and economic future in the year and the decade ahead.
According to The Economist, all eyes are on Brazil, the world’s eighth largest economy since Jair Bolsonaro won the presidential election. In their opinion, markets have surged, and local investors seem confident that better days are coming. The event will have panels addressing economic perspectives, Latin America’s future, the pension reform, compliance practices and relations with investors, fintech – the financial startups –, Brazil’s relation to China, the Amazon, climatic changes, artificial intelligence, and others.
The event’s moderators will be The Economist business editor Jan Piotrowsky (pictured above in the Brazil Summit 2015) and Brazil bureau chief Sarah Maslin.
Some of the most notable speakers are the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia; co-founder and co-chairman of Natura, Guilherme Leal; former president of the Central Bank of Brazil, Gustavo Franco; chief economist for XP Investimentos, Zeina Latif; chief Latin American economist for Morgan Stanley, Arthur Carvalho; co-founder and executive director of the Igarapé Institute, Ilona Szabó; founder and chief executive of Nubank, David Vélez; president of Insper, Marcos Lisboa; and others.
