Brazil and Europe: The politics of the new global economy
Policy Network and the Brazilian Embassy to the United Kingdom will hold a colloquium on Brazil, Britain and Europe in a changing world.

Confirmed speakers include:

Roberto Jaguaribe, Brazilian Ambassador to the United Kingdom
Peter Mandelson, President of Policy Network and former UK First Secretary of State
Jim O’Neill, Chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management
Ngaire Woods, Professor of International Political Economy, Oxford University

Chair: Shaun Ley, Presenter, The World This Weekend, BBC Radio 4

The dramatic rise of the emerging economies has been about new markets, jobs and growth. But it has also been about new ideas: Brazil, India and China have all followed their own unique paths of development. As Britain and Europe struggle with the aftermath of the global economic crisis, Brazil continues to exhibit rapid economic growth with social inclusion - millions have joined the middle class.


The event will explore these changes and seek to address the following questions:

• As the global centres of production shift to emerging markets, what will be the effect on Brazil, Britain and Europe? 

• What opportunities and challenges does the rise of Brazil present for Britain and Europe and which sectors are open for strategic partnerships?

• What are the distinct features of Brazil’s approach to economic development, globalisation and international affairs? And are there any lessons that they offer?

This colloquium, followed by a drinks reception, offers a unique opportunity to interact with a range of senior politicians, expert policymakers, media commentators and business stakeholders on issues related to emerging markets, Brazil’s development and the opportunities it presents the rest of the world.
