On April 7, the Grupo de Análise da Conjuntura Internacional from the Instituto de Relações Internacionais (GACInt) at the University of São Paulo held a private roundtable to discuss the priorities of the Biden administration in the Americas and what it means for the future of US relations with Brazil.
Roberto Teixeira da Costa, member of the Board of GACInt and the Inter-American Dialogue, gave opening remarks. Michael Shifter, president of the Dialogue, gave a keynote address which was followed by closing remarks by Abrão M. Árabe Neto, executive vice president of the American Chamber of Commerce in São Paulo.
Topics discussed included the latest developments in Brazil, the challenging situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in the region, the effects of the amicable Bolsonaro-Trump relationship and how it interplays with the new Biden administration, and the role that the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate will have in US-Brazil relations.
