“A dialogue about this issue is imperative”

João Bosco Monte

Among the discussions, the Brazil Africa 2020 Forum aims to present business opportunities that exist for Brazil on the African continent and vice versa. The debates will focus on topics such as biodiversity, renewable energy, maritime resources, among others.

“Brazil and the countries of the African continent are very privileged in terms of natural resources, possessing some of the most valuable ecosystems, forests, and watercourses on the planet. This way, a dialogue on this issue is imperative, and this is what the Brazil Africa  Forum 2020 will address. The connections that will be created at the event have the potential to benefit millions of lives, both in Brazil and in African countries,” says João Bosco Monte, President of the Brazil Africa Institute.
