Brazilian State Of Minas Gerais To Showcase Its Business Potential At Investment Luncheon

PALM BEACH, Fla., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Minas Gerais as the Future of International Business" investment luncheon will assemble elite members of the international financial and investment communities to discuss the burgeoning economy of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais and the enormous investment opportunities it presents.

The luncheon will take place on Saturday, April 27th, 2013 from 11:30am - 2:30pm at Donald J. Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Economists, international investors and government officials from the state of Minas Gerais will be in attendance. The event is sponsored by the State Government of Minas Gerais.

Keynote speakers at the event will include Dorothea Werneck of the Minas Gerais State Economic Development and Jose Frederico Alvarez, President of INDI, Minas Gerais State Investment Promotion Agency.

Focus will be on the recent reinvention of Minas Gerais, from a region known as a vibrant tourist destination but with an ailing economy, into a thriving hub for international business. The economic project began in 2003 with the implementation of good governance and concerted forms of public and private investment via PPPs (Public-Private Partnerships) in infrastructure, education, job growth, public services and environmental policies. This has succeeded not only in energizing Minas Gerais' economy, but also transforming it into an industrial powerhouse, significantly enhancing its international investment profile.

Today, Minas Gerais represents Brazil's third largest economy and is the country's second most populous state. Contributing over 9% of Brazil's GDP through agriculture and industry, Minas Gerais is also home to the country's top-five universities. A transparent and efficient public management system has created optimal conditions for growth and reduced investment risks. 

In 2011, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) considered Minas Gerais one of the most well prepared Brazilian states to receive foreign investment, and in 2012, EIU issued a new study which placed Minas Gerais among the most competitive states in the country.
