SAO PAULO, May 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LIDE – Grupo de Lideres Empresariais ('Group of Business Leaders'), together with AS/COA – Americas Society / Council of The Americas, will host the LIDE BUSINESS BREAKFAST and LIDE BUSINESS LUNCH on May 18, at 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. in New York. The event provides an opportunity for officials, entrepreneurs and American and Brazilian investors to strengthen and promote bilateral relations between the two countries in this new political and economic phase for Brazil.
Intended for banks, investment funds and rating agencies, the LIDE BUSINESS BREAKFAST will feature as speaker the Governor of Mato Grosso, Pedro Taques (MT); and the LIDE BUSINESS LUNCH will welcome the Governor of Goias, Marconi Perillo (GO). These gatherings will take place at the Americas Society, a traditional American institution that brings together the main U.S. investors in Latin America.
For Luiz Fernando Furlan, chairman of the Board of LIDE, and former Minister of Industrial Development and Foreign Trade, "these two states afford excellent opportunities for U.S. investors, showcasing Brazil's potential even more overseas, particularly in light of the economic situation we're faced with now. Because of the wide range of options they offer for investment, such as agriculture, industry, energy and mining, Mato Grosso and Goias can function as springs to drive the country's recovery," Furlan asserted.
According to Roberto Giannetti da Fonseca, Vice Chairman of the Group, who will also be mediating the discussions, "it should be emphasized that, in spite of reversals, the Brazilian economy is among the ten biggest in the world, and is already giving signals of its recovery, which inspires us to hold the LIDE BUSINESS gatherings in New York."
This will be the second edition of this event which, in 2015, featured a presentation by the Governor of Sao Paulo, Geraldo Alckmin, and brought together 320 investors, bankers, rating analysts and American and Brazilian entrepreneurs, also in New York.
