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 provided to Brazilian companies 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, committees and forums led by CNI.
The document is issued every March and delivered to key policy makers within Brazilian federal government agencies involved with trade policy.
The 2021 edition of the International Agenda of Industry focuses on 111 actions to be pursued by CNI in four main areas—trade policy advocacy, trade promotion services, strategic markets, and international cooperation. Out of them, 10 were selected as key priorities for the year.
