The Government of Brazil has initiated a public consultation offering companies, business associations or civil society organizations an opportunity to comment on the country’s proposed new foreign trade strategy.
The consultation was initiated by the Foreign Trade Board (CAMEX), Brazil’s federal government interagency mechanism to coordinate the country’s trade policy. CAMEX is part of the Executive Office of the President and chaired by the Vice-President. It was recently reorganized and strengthened by Decree 11428 of March 2, 2023.
The public consultation is open until December 6, 2023. Its scope includes measures in five areas:
- Export competitiveness;
- Economic integration;
- Trade facilitation and reduction of bureaucracy;
- Trade and sustainability; and
- Remedies for illegal and unfair trade practices.
