Government Intervention in Companies and Markets – The Case of Brazil

With speaker Mauro Rodrigues da Cunha

Register Today! 

Over the past few years, government intervention has returned to the lives of Brazilian managers and investors. Recent news surrounding the CEO position of Vale and Petrobras, as well as increased government voting power over Eletrobras have made these risks very concrete. Our speaker has extensive experience as a director of state-owned companies, as well as private sector companies under significant government influence, such as Petrobras, Eletrobras, Caixa Economica and Vale.

Key Takeaways:
  • Is this a relevant issue, or just froth?
  • Is this new, or is it a result of long-term factors?
  • What are the strategic impacts, in terms of global supply chains, FDI, M&A and IPOs ?
  • How can private sector actors navigate in such scenarios?
  • What are the risks and opportunities for Brazil and for other countries that may be going on the same direction?
The discussion will take place under Chatnam House rules.
