International Agenda of Industry
Every year, the Brazilian National Confederation of Industry (CNI) releases its International Agenda of Industry, a broad roadmap of trade policy proposals advocated by CNI and of internationalization services to Brazilian companies provided by both the Confederation and its affiliated state-level Federations of Industries.
CNI is the leading business organization in Brazil representing more than 800,000 companies, over 1,200 sectoral trade associations and the country’s 27 state-level Federations of Industries.
The priorities of the International Agenda of Industry are defined by a regular consultation process with companies and other business organizations gathered in permanent coalitions, councils and fora led by CNI.
The document is issued every March and delivered to key policy makers within the Brazilian federal government agencies involved with foreign trade. The 2020 edition of the International Agenda of Industry focuses on 109 actions to be pursued by CNI in four main areas: trade policy advocacy, trade-related services, strategic markets, and international cooperation.
