President of the Republic Michel Temer is visiting Russia and Norway next week to present Brazil's panorama to foreign investors and leaders. Meetings with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, and with King Harald V and Prime Minister Erna Solberg in Oslo, are among the international trip's main engagements.
In both capitals, Temer will talk to investors about the economic modernisation moment Brazil is going through, with the creation of an environment providing more fiscal responsibility and legal certainty. The president will also present business opportunities to businesspeople, with the Grow Programme standing out.
"Once more, I shall put presidential diplomacy at the service of Brazilian priorities: economic growth and job creation", states Temer in article published this Friday (16) on the O Estado de S. Paulo newspaper.
The investment attraction agenda at Brics partner Russia will be based on the strong interest Russian businesspeople have in the energy area. Other opportunities in the area of infrastructure will also be looked at, like ventures in railways and ports.
In Norway, the eighth biggest investor in Brazil and a country that is very much present in the energy sector, the programme will address the new Brazilian regulatory framework, with a view to attracting new Norwegian investments.
President Michel Temer will visit Russia on 20 and 21 June, and Norway on 22 and 23.
