Brazil’s Defense Minister Outlines Military Goals

Brazil's Minister of Defense (at podium) outlines his country's security strategy.

Brazilian Minister of Defense Nelson Azevedo Jobim spoke at GW on Oct. 20 as part of a conference hosted by GWSB’s Institute of Brazilian Issues and the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College. Jobim presented a detailed description of Brazil’s plans to modernize its military forces. These ambitious plans include the construction of several conventional submarines and one nuclear submarine, the purchase of a new wing of fighter jets and the creation of 25 army posts along the country’s northwestern border to control movements in this region.
