Twenty-six Brazilian regulatory officials recently completed a special two-week professional development program organized by GWSB’s Institute of Brazilian Business and Public Management Issues (IBI). This was the sixth cohort of Brazilian regulators to visit GWSB over the past two years under a program sponsored by the Office of the President of Brazil, which is keen to modernize that country’s regulatory infrastructure and strengthen its capabilities. The IBI program aims to provide participants an understanding of how the United States and other developed economies approach regulation and, through direct discussions with regulatory officials here, to acquaint participants with the best practices in the field.
“The Office of the President of Brazil is highly pleased with the program,” said James Ferrer, director of IBI and GWSB’s Center for Latin American Issues. “IBI expects to welcome additional groups of Brazilian regulators in the coming year.”
The latest group of Brazilian participants included officials from the Office of President, several cabinet departments (including the ministries of Justice, Finance, Planning, Budget, Health, Communications, Transport and others) and numerous federal Brazilian regulatory agencies.
