President Jair Bolzano today (Wednesday) signed an order establishing the representative office of the Brazilian Ministry of Economy in Washington-DC, the capital of the United States (USA). This text will be published in the next issue of the Official Gazette (DOU).

According to the government, the office aims to “integrate the image of the country into a safe environment for doing business responsibly in environmental, social and administrative dimensions.”

Among the characteristics of the group that coordinates representation is the dissemination of economic reforms implemented in Brazil, which will provide greater security in attracting investors.

“The office will be in full coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to promote employment and income-generating business opportunities for the country. In addition, identify barriers to foreign investment and demonstrate the country’s economic stability and stability,” the statement said.

Brazil already has other organizations that focus on attracting foreign investment, namely the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), which has offices in the United States, in addition to the embassies’ economic departments.
