The main objective of this project is to support the Brazilian government in the dissemination and implementation of the new trade policy and agreements related to trade openness, as well as to convert those changes into investment promotion activities at national and sub-national levels. To achieve this goal, this TC will: (i) share information about the benefits and challenges that the new wave of free trade agreements will bring to the Brazilian markets; (ii) strengthen existing business opportunities and boost emerging opportunities in strategic sectors such as: infrastructure, innovation, agrobusiness, ICT, energy, transport and environment (among others); (iii) train public servants to develop and review foreign trade policies and programs, in addition to evaluate their results and impacts; and (iv) organize business fora where high-level Brazilian and international investors, policy makers, government officials and entrepreneurs share their ideas and insights on how to maximize the potential of business relationship in diverse sectors.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
