Roundtable with Roberto Castelo Branco
 - Petrobras President


#BRAZILCHAM NYC promote in the last december 6th a luncheon roundtable with Federal Judge Renato Becho of the 10th Federal Court of Tax Execution (Vara Federal de Execuções Fiscais). Judge Becho is also a Professor of Tax Law at PUC/SP.
Judge Becho shared his  analysis of the reasons why Brazil is ranked so low in the World Justice Projects’ Rule of Law Index (58th out of 126 countries surveyed). His analysis focused on the inconsistencies in the decision making process of Brazilian judges, who in many cases follow neither the proscribed laws of a Civil Law System, nor the precedents of a Common Law society.
Judge Becho discussed Brazil’s new Civil Procedure Code of 2015, its intent to correct the imperfections in the decision making process, and why it has not yet succeeded as hoped. He presented a brief case study illustrating his analysis. His case study and general discussion focused on tax law, given his expertise in the area.

  • CAPITAL MARKET ALTERNATIVES

  •  
                 The Chamber NYC organized a panel discussion on funding conditions for Brazilian borrowers, with emphasis on the relative competitiveness between domestic versus international markets. The panel covered current conditions in both the international and domestic markets and the advantages and disadvantages of issuing in each market, covering such topics as comparative costs and tenors, new products, documentation, disclosure, and marketing.
The panel was comprised of active practitioners: A corporate issuer with access to both local and international markets; Capital markets bankers for the domestic market and the international markets; The U.S International Development Finance Corporation which represents a significant new source of funding for infrastructure projects; Finally, Brazil and U.S. counsel highlighting key legal issues for domestic and international offerings.

Sula -- The GOP has used gerrymandering to silence Texans for a decade. So we've made the Lone Star State one of our top targets for 2020 -- and there's an election coming up this month!

Our candidate: Eliz Markowitz. Election Day is January 28. Help us win this seat and many others in 2020.
Eliz is fighting for one of the nine seats (out of 150!) that Democrats need to win back the Texas House and prevent Republican map manipulation. We are so close, Sula:
Texas Tribune:
Democrats could gain control of the Texas House for the first time since 2001. Houston Public Media: To Counter Gerrymandering, Texas Democrats Aim To Recapture State House in 2020. Pitch in to make it happen
But we have our work cut out for us. Republicans are digging in to protect their total control over redistricting in Texas and four other key states -- Ohio, Georgia, Florida, and North Carolina.

Will you help us take them on? Chip in to break Republican control in 2020!

Brazil may return to more robust economic growth in 2020 after a disappointing 2019. Growth may cross the 2% thresh-old, as investment recovers, led by a resurgence in housing. Business expectations have improved. Inflation remains under control, ensuring that low interest rates will remain at or below the current 4.50%. We may also see continued improvement in fiscal accounts, slowing government debt growth to sustainable rates. 2019 saw significant financial outflows, leading to a sharp depreciation of the Real, despite interventions by the Central Bank. 2020 may see a reversal of these flows.

How 2020 plays out depends upon economic policy continuity and global developments, and the risk of political stalemate in Brazil. The unsettled political environment domestically and internationally was a key uncertainty in 2019, impeding the economic outlook and capital inflows. Hopefully 2020 will overcome these constraints.

Join us for our traditional semi-annual outlook with a distinguished panel of experts to explore Brazil’s economic, business, and political future for 2020 and beyond.

Mixed Economic Data, Tensions With Iran

Overview: Mortgage rates have held relatively steady so far in 2020, a result of two offsetting influences: increased tensions with Iran, which were modestly favorable for mortgage rates, and the net effect of mixed economic data, which was slightly negative.
Divider
While the trade negotiations between the U.S. and China dominated international economic news in 2019, a new potential source of concern unexpectedly captured the spotlight over the past week. On Friday, the U.S. launched a drone strike that killed a top Iranian military commander. In apparent retaliation, Iran then launched missiles at an Iraqi airbase hosting American troops on Tuesday night. Investors responded by shifting to safer assets such as bonds while they watch to see if the situation will escalate further, but the impact has been relatively small so far.

The two biggest economic reports released over the past week came from the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) and contained mixed results. The ISM Services Index, which covers the bulk of U.S. economic activity, increased more than expected to 55, which was the highest level since August. By contrast, the ISM Manufacturing Index declined more than expected to 47.2, which was the worst reading since June 2009. Readings above 50 signal an expansion, while those below 50 indicate a contraction. The manufacturing sector has been suffering for many months from trade restrictions imposed by the U.S. and China.
