Details

Known as the largest event for foreign investment in Latin America, BIF will bring together federal, state and local government authorities and executives from large companies from Brazil and the world, as well as representatives from academia, the press and opinion makers.

In this edition the Forum will highlight investment opportunities in strategic sectors such as agribusiness, energy, infrastructure, health, innovation, health and technology, among others. This will be a unique opportunity to discuss improvements in the country’s business environment.

This year BIF will be held in a hybrid mode, offering the possibility of participation in person and online. The event will feature high-level panel discussions with government representatives and CEOs from leading multinationals, a meeting space with representatives of local governments, a room to present public and private projects in Brazil that are seeking investment inputs, and opportunities for networking among participants.
