Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro will take office on January 15, though the outlines of his policy agenda will begin taking shape well before this date already in the final months of 2018. While Bolsonaro has made many promises, much is still unknown about what he will prioritize and the extent to which he will be able to build and sustain a coalition in Congress.
Much is at stake as Bolsonaro needs to pass a pension reform in 2019 in order to drive faster economic growth and help create jobs, thus sustaining his broader popular support. Bolsonaro’s policy success will also dictate the extent to which we see greater currency stability in Brazil in 2019. While multinationals are preparing for faster growth, looking to introduce new products to the market while optimizing supply chains and customer engagement strategies, there remains significant risk in the market.
On February 14, FSG will be hosting our first of two Brazil focused Executives Breakfasts in 2019. This event will be focused on reviewing FSG’s scenarios for the Bolsonaro government, and looking out over the next four years to anticipate the opportunities and challenges that multinationals are likely to face as this administration begins to implement its agenda.
The event itself will be tailored to permit deep engagement between participating executives, and to permit sharing of best practices and insights on how multinationals can best prepare to capture upside opportunity and reduce exposure to market disruptions.
