WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce congratulates Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on his election to be the next president of Brazil and looks forward to working closely with him to strengthen the vital hemispheric partnership between the United States and Brazil.
“Brazil is a key strategic partner to the U.S. business community in important areas with global impact such as food security, energy transition, and regional integration. The Chamber looks forward to working with the new administration on economic and trade matters with an eye to promoting stability and prosperity throughout the region,” said Suzanne P. Clark, President and Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“The political transition in Brazil ushers in a new chapter for the country. As Brazil looks internally to its domestic reforms and globally for development partners, the opportunity is ripe to define a sustainable path for prosperity. More than at any other time, foreign direct investments can play a critical role as an engine of growth. The Brazil-U.S. Business Council stands ready to work with the upcoming Lula Administration to advance our shared interests and common goals,” said Roberto Azevêdo, Chair, Brazil-U.S. Business Council, Executive Vice President, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, PepsiCo and Chairman of Board of Directors, The PepsiCo Foundation.
