U.S.-Brazil CEO Forum Seeking New Members
The International Trade Administration is soliciting applications for appointment to the U.S.-Brazil CEO Forum through Nov. 4. Up to three individuals will be appointed.
The Forum is composed of two sections, each consisting of 10-12 leaders of the respective business communities of the United States and Brazil. Members discuss issues of mutual interest and provide recommendations on the creation of an economic environment in which the private sectors can partner, thrive and enhance bilateral commercial ties in order to expand two-way trade.
Each candidate must be the chief executive officer or president (or have a comparable level of responsibility) of a U.S.-owned or -controlled company that is incorporated in and has its main headquarters in the U.S. and is currently doing business in both Brazil and the U.S. Each candidate also must be a U.S. citizen or otherwise legally authorized to work in the United States and able to travel to meetings in both countries. Applicants will be selected based on specified criteria, including demonstrated commitment by their companies to the Brazilian market through exports or investment, a demonstrated strong interest in Brazil and its economic development, and the ability to address cross-cutting issues that affect the entire business community.
