About the Survey
Since 2014, the Brazilian National Confederation of Industry (CNI) holds the Diplomatic Briefing, which is a biannual initiative to strengthen the relationship with foreign diplomatic missions in Brasília.
The establishment of the Diplomatic Briefing, together with the longstanding cooperation between CNI and foreign embassies, led to the implementation of a survey on relevant topics to further improve bilateral relations.
