Le débat sera modéré par Monsieur Jean-Pierre Beaudoin

Marcus Rantala  est un politicien finlandais qui fait partie du Conseil municipal de Helsinki où il  représente le Parti du peuple suédois.

Elections in Brazil: Life After Impeachment?

 

How are the markets faring and what lies ahead for Latin America’s giant as a place to do business?

Welcome to a breakfast briefing on Brazil’s first presidential election since the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff in 2016. Lauri Tähtinen, a country specialist and Nordic West Office’s Head of Research and Analysis, explores Brazil’s politics, economy and place in the world.

Join us to learn more about the cast of characters leading in the polls:

·        The wildly popular ex-president, Lula, who remains imprisoned and thus excluded from running for office.

·        The foul-mouthed congressman, Jaír Bolsonaro, who boosts the military dictatorship and boasts about not understanding the economy.

·        The environmental activist Marina Silva, an Evangelical Christian, whose electoral platform combines social conservatism with an anti-corruption agenda.

Will a mainstream presidential candidate surge, and what is the outlook for congressional and state elections? Can Brazil recover from a historic corruption scandal and economic downturn? How does democracy fare after impeachment? The Brazilian experience holds lessons beyond its borders on what may follow the ousting of an elected head of state.

Join us for breakfast, immerse yourself in all things Brazilian and be prepared to ask some hard questions.

·        When: Wednesday, September 19, 8.30-10 am (breakfast served from 8 am)

·        Where: Nordic West Office, Vuorikatu 15 A, 00100 Helsinki

·        Registration: (with dietary restrictions) by Thursday Sep 13 by email: events@nordicwestoffice.com

This breakfast session is organized by Nordic West Office in co-operation with Finnish-Latin-American Trade Association, Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Europe Network.

The event is free of charge. Welcome!

Nordic West Office provides analysis on elections that have an impact on Nordic Business. Other sessions this autumn are:

·        Tuesday, September 4 at 8.30-10 am: Elections in Sweden. All forecasts point to chaos.

·        Friday, November 9 at 8.30-10 am: Elections in the US. Referendum on Trump.

For registrations please send an email to events@nordicwestoffice.com.

Opportunity Thailand - Many opportunities at the centre of ASEAN, a growing market with 600+ million consumers -

Thailand is located at the geographic centre of ASEAN and is an ideal logistics base to serve the region and countries beyond. Free-trade agreements have been established within ASEAN and with China, India, Australia and New Zealand to facilitate trade and investment. This fact coupled with Thailand Board of Investment incentives and a reasonable priced, high quality labour force, good infrastructure and a stable economy make Thailand an ideal steppingstone for expansion into ASEAN.

Austria is the fourth richest country in the EU and has a well-developed market economy, skilled labor force, and high standard of living. Its economy is closely tied to other EU economies, especially Germany’s. Austria’s economy features a large service sector, a sound industrial sector, and a small, but highly developed agricultural sector. Surrounded by eight neighboring countries, Austria’s central location makes it an ideal place to conduct business both within Western Europe and into Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Already more than 1000 global companies coordinate their activities from Austria.
