Two Markets in a Global World

13 November 2017

The Brazilian Chamber would like to invite you to an evening presentation looking at the current Brazilian economic scenario and the impact of Brexit on the international currency market.  The presentation will be followed by a drinks reception.

Brazil has now been facing a longstanding political crisis which has had a major impact on its economic environment.  Brazil’s economy has been in a deep recession since 2014 but has been showing modest growth in 2017. At the same time, there has been uncertainty for the UK as Brexit negotiations continue. 

In this current climate of uncertainty we seek to discuss what is happening on the Brazilian economic front and how Brexit will affect the international currency market.
