Brasília, 27 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.
As the US presidential election approaches, some webinars cover that issue. Apart from that, this week’s webinars talk about China, India, spending review, politics, environment and, of course, economy.
Please, observe the time zones, and thanks for all the suggestions.
