Brasília, 20 September 2020.
This is the selection of webinars for this week about political economy, public policy and business-government relations. All webinars are in English, except the ones with a title in Portuguese.
Please, observe the time zones, and thanks for all the suggestions.
In line with “Climate Week NYC” (see here for the extensive list of events) and the General Assembly of the United Nations, many webinars are related to these two events.
Apart from that, we’ll have digital platforms under scrutiny, women empowerment, the independence of central banks, fintechs and a 2-day conference on security.
