Indigenous leaders from across Latin America convened in the Brazilian capital this week to push for the rights of native peoples and draft a collective agenda for COP30, which includes measures ranging from land demarcation to fair energy transition, participants at the Campamento Tierra Libre (Free Land Camp) told EFE.

Marking the 20th anniversary of the camp, held from April 22 to 26, nearly 8,000 individuals participated in what is considered Brazil’s largest indigenous mobilization, featuring traditional rituals, debate plenaries, vigils, and a crafts fair.

The Campamento Tierra Libre primarily aims to defend the rights of Brazilian Indigenous people to preserve their territories.

At this year’s camp, Latin American indigenous leaders worked on drafting a document outlining a united strategy for the upcoming United Nations Climate Conference (COP30). The conference is scheduled to take place in 2025 in the Brazilian city of Belém, located in the Amazon region, and is expected to be a crucial event for indigenous communities.

Key demands by Latin American indigenous peoples include the development and enhancement of public policies ensuring their rights, land demarcation and protection, and other guarantees for sustainable socioeconomic development in the region.

Brazil’s consumer prices rose slightly less than expected in the mid-April reading, data from statistics agency IBGE showed on Friday.

Prices in Latin America’s largest economy rose 0.21% in the month to mid-March, below the 0.29% growth expected by economists polled by Reuters.

This took the inflation of the previous 12 months to 3.77%, slowing down from 4.14% in the 12 months to mid-March and also below expectations of a 3.86% increase. The reading marked the first time since July last year the figure came in below 4%.

“All told, the inflation picture continues to improve in Brazil, thanks to favorable base effects, the lagged effect of high-interest rates and softening domestic demand,” said Andres Abadia, Chief Latam Economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.

From chatbots to pilot announcements, AI is starting to gain traction

When you board a United Airlines plane, the gate agents, flight attendants and others involved in making sure your plane leaves on time are in a chatroom coordinating a lot of the work that you, as a passenger, will hopefully never notice. Is there still space for carry-on bags? Did the caterer bring the missing orange juice? Is there a way to seat a family together?

When a flight is delayed, a message with an explanation will arrive by text and in the United app. Most of the time, that message is generated by AI. Meanwhile, in offices around the world, dispatchers are looking at this real-time data to ensure that the crew can still legally fly the plane without running afoul of FAA regulations. And only a few weeks ago, United turned on its AI customer service chatbot.

Jason Birnbaum, who became United’s CIO in 2022, manages a team of over 1,500 employees and about 2,000 contractors who are responsible for all of the tech that makes this happen.

Every flight has an AI story

United is quite bullish on AI, Birnbaum said. “I think the travel industry has so many different examples of where AI can be used both for the customer and for the employees.” One of those is United’s “Every flight has a story.”

Not that long ago, it was rather typical to get a notification when a flight was delayed, but no further information about it. Maybe the incoming flight was delayed. Maybe there was a maintenance issue. A few years ago, United started using agents to write short notices that explained the delay and sent those out through its app and as text messages. Now, pulling in data from its chat app and other sources, the vast majority of these messages are written by AI.

AI for pilots?

After creating the system that automatically writes the delay “stories” in the app, Birnbaum’s team is now thinking about where it can use the same generative AI technology. One area: those short briefings pilots usually give before takeoff.

“A pilot actually came up to me and said, ‘One of the things that some pilots are great at is getting on that speaker and saying, “Hey, welcome, everybody going to Las Vegas, blah blah.”’ And he said, ‘Some pilots are introverted; could you have an AI engine that helps me generate an announcement on the plane about where I’m going so that I could give a really good announcement about what’s happening?’ And I thought that was a great use case.”

Another area where generative AI may help pilots is in summarizing complex technical documents. But as Birnbaum rightly noted, everything that involves the pilot flying the plane is heavily structured and regulated, so it’ll be a while before the airline will launch anything there.

EUA lançam primeira usina com combustível de aviação sustentável e mercado brasileiro poderá ser fornecedor

Embora os Estados Unidas consigam produzir seu próprio etanol através do milho, os investidores americanos estão interessados em trazer o Etanol brasileiro, vindo da cana-de-açúcar para a produção comercial do combustível. Além da melhor qualidade do produto brasileiro que pode ser explorado em maior quantidade, o fato das maiores usinas brasileiras já estarem certificadas para produzir matéria-prima para o combustível de aviação sustentável (SAF). Através do certificado, essas usinas passam a atender aos padrões internacionais de produção, o que acabou sendo um interessante chamariz para que os americanos olhassem com bons olhos o etanol nacional.

Entre as usinas certificadas, a São Martinho espera ser a primeira a fechar negócio e abastecer os EUA. A empresa conseguiu o certificado de padrão Corsia, que é globalmente aceito e possui o registro da Agência de Proteção Ambiental dos EUA (EPA).

Porém, na cola para conquistar os americanos, outras grandes nacionais como a Raízen, BP Bunge Bioenergia e usinas ligadas à Copersucar também possuem o certificado Corsia que só é conseguida a partir de empresas que conseguem provar que a produção é feita com emissões baixas e que não contribuem para o desmatamento.

A produção mundial de SAF com base no etanol é de cerca de 9 bilhões de litros por ano de biocombustível até 2030, segundo estimativa da Raízen. Esse valor é o equivalente a um terço de toda a produção de etanol do Brasil. Porém, o vice-presidente da Raízen, joint venture entre a Cosan e a Shell, Paulo Neves, a empresa está segura de que conseguirá atender os Estados Unidos sem deixar o Brasil defasado.

The documentary “The Road to Prosperity” presents testimonies from Guedes and
the team of the ministry that lasted from 2019 to 2022

On May 14, the city of New York hosts the premiere of the film “The Path to Prosperity” – a documentary directed by filmmaker Paulo Moura about the legacy of Paulo Guedes at the Ministry of Economy. The work features testimonies from Guedes and various members of the super-ministry, such as Daniella Marques, Adolfo Sachsida, and Waldery Rodrigues, as well as Carlos Langoni – economist and former president of the Central Bank, who passed away in June 2021.

The film presents as its guiding thread Paulo Guedes’ thesis for the Road to Prosperity, which at the Ministry of Economy translated mainly into the implementation of emergency measures, structural reforms, streamlining, and digital government. Through insightful interviews and firsthand accounts from over 30 government collaborators, the documentary narrates Guedes’ efforts to foster economic growth, attract foreign investment, and streamline bureaucratic processes.

Key themes explored include Guedes’ emphasis on reducing state intervention, promoting privatization, and implementing structural reforms like the Pension Reform. The film also sheds light on his vision for tax reform and digitalization of public services, positioning Brazil as a competitive player on the global stage.

Featuring testimonials from prominent figures in economics and government, “The Road to Prosperity” offers a comprehensive insight into Guedes’ transformative leadership and his enduring impact on Brazil’s economic trajectory.

The film does not yet have a release date in Brazil.

H-1B Initial Electronic Registration Selection Process Completed

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has received enough electronic registrations for unique beneficiaries during the initial registration period to reach the fiscal year (FY) 2025 H-1B numerical allocations (H-1B cap), including the advanced degree exemption (master’s cap). We have randomly selected enough properly submitted registrations for unique beneficiaries projected as needed to reach the H-1B cap and have notified all prospective petitioners with selected beneficiaries that they are eligible to file an H-1B cap-subject petition for such beneficiaries.

For more information, visit the H-1B Electronic Registration Process page.

FY 2025 H-1B Cap Petitions May Be Filed Starting April 1

H-1B cap-subject petitions for FY 2025, including those petitions eligible for the advanced degree exemption, may be filed with USCIS beginning April 1, 2024, if filed for a selected beneficiary and based on a valid registration.

Only petitioners with registrations for selected beneficiaries may file H-1B cap-subject petitions for FY 2025.

An H-1B cap-subject petition must be properly filed at the correct filing location (see H-1B Form I-129 Filing Location Change to Lockbox section below) or online at and within the filing period indicated on the relevant selection notice. The period for filing the H-1B cap-subject petition will be at least 90 days. Petitioners must include a copy of the applicable selection notice with the FY 2025 H-1B cap-subject petition.

Petitioners must also submit evidence of the beneficiary’s valid passport or travel document used at the time of registration to identify the beneficiary.

Petitioners filing for selected beneficiaries based on their valid registration must still submit evidence or otherwise establish eligibility for petition approval, as registration and selection only pertains to eligibility to file the H-1B cap-subject petition.

King & Spalding, which received The American Lawyer’s Best Law Firm of the Year award in late 2023, has achieved notable success in recent years, growing its revenue and profits, key offices and international presence, all without a merger

Its financial growth was particularly remarkable during the pandemic, as the litigation powerhouse targeted growth across the energy, food and beverage, and health care sectors when other industries were stagnant, according to one analysis.

The Atlanta-founded firm steadily increased its revenues over the years before breaking the $2 billion mark in 2022—and will top that mark and other metrics in 2023, said longtime chairman Robert Hays in an interview this month. The firm’s revenue growth has consistently beaten the Am Law 100 collective growth rate each year for the past several years.

King & Spalding has expanded in major U.S. markets like New York and in growing international regions like Saudi Arabia throughout the year, said Hays, who has served as chairman since 2006 and was reelected earlier this month (January, 2024).

King & Spalding beat out seven other firms for the Best Law Firm of the Year award and also won awards for Attorney of the Year (Sally Yates), and Best Client-Law Firm Team (King & Spalding and Blackstone Credit). It was a finalist for Managing Partner of the Year (Robert Hays), Best Provider Collaboration, Litigation Department of the Year for Product Liability, and Georgia Litigation Department of the Year.

The report also stated that “energy was the only bright spot” in the stagnant economy during the pandemic and King & Spalding was among firms that “made sustained investments in talent depth and market reputation” in that sector.

Regional to Global

Hays, in the interview, cited an award factor mentioned during the presentation ceremony in New York: the firm’s history in recent decades of moving from being a regional firm to a “national
and global firm.”

King & Spalding expanded from its “flagship” Atlanta office in 1989, to 13 U.S. and 10 foreign offices with more than 1,300 lawyers today, according to firm information.

In 2023, after years of operating offices in the United Arab Emirates, the firm’s longtime affiliation with a local firm led to Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Justice awarding King & Spalding a foreign law license.

Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras, one of Brazil’s three major carriers, announced it would relaunch operations from its hub at Aeroporto Internacional de Recife-Guararapes to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale

Azul is Brazil’s largest carrier by number of flights and destinations served. Founded in 2008 by David Neeleman, the carrier has grown rapidly and become the airline many Brazilians consider the best in the nation. Compared to LATAM Brasil, its international long-haul operations are limited, with only four cities served: two in the United States and two in Europe.

The airline announced that from June 5, it would be resuming flights from its hub at Aeroporto Internacional de Recife-Gurarapes to Orlando International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Flights were suspended last month due to capacity restraints with its widebody fleet, but with the acquisition of new (to the airline) aircraft, Azul can resume flights just three months after suspending them.

Unlike most routes from the United States, where aircraft remain on the ground in Brazil for the entire day before flying back to the US overnight, Azul will fly to the US during the day, and its return legs will operate overnight.

Since March of this year, the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Brazil have introduced the option of paying the application fee (MRV) via Pix. This new alternative is in the initial phase of implementation and payments may require up to an hour for approval

In addition to this method, applicants still have the option of payment by credit card or in cash. This innovation reflects our ongoing commitment to improving services for Brazilian visa applicants.

Between January and March 2024, the number of visas processed by the United States in Brazil grew by 20 percent compared to the same period last year. This means that more than 340,000 visas were processed in just three months across the country. This increase is the result of our commitment to providing an increasingly better consular service. In 2024, we expect to break the record of 1.1 million visas issued in Brazil in 2023.

Brazil’s Cutrale group, a leading global supplier of orange juice, will invest 500 million real ($100.55 million) to plant the fruit in Mato Grosso do Sul state in a bid to expand into regions with lower pressure from greening disease, according to state authorities.

The cureless disease has partly damaged trees in Brazil and destroyed most of them in the United States, causing orange juice prices to skyrocket.

The government of Mato Grosso do Sul, in Brazil’s center-west, said the company will plant 5,000 hectares with oranges in the town of Sidrolandia, according to a statement late on Wednesday.

Mato Grosso do Sul said Cutrale is expected to plant 1.73 million orange trees on irrigated fields there, adding in the future the company could set up a processing facility in the area.

Cutrale confirmed to Reuters it “met with the government of Mato Grosso do Sul to discuss investments in the region’s citrus industry.” But the company added it could not elaborate on the tentative project, making the timeline for implementation of the fields unclear.

Global Data Review (GDR) has, for the fourth consecutive time, named White & Case LLP to its Global Elite list.

Sitting atop the GDR 100 ranking of the world’s leading data law firms, these 25 “exceptionally good” practices are noted for their international reach and “top-of-the-market” work.

White & Case is ranked #2 overall, and in the top three in the following categories:

  • Data protection advisory: This category highlights firms advising on “the most complex cross-border projects.”
  • Non-personal data advisory: This category focuses on firms’ work in areas such as “the collection and use of data used to train AI (and, more recently, bespoke regulatory advice on AI models’ operation), critical infrastructure cybersecurity rules like the EU’s NIS 2 Directive, or companies seeking advice on how best to protect their valuable proprietary data from espionage or hacks.”
  • Investigations: This category considers firms’ work with “their most demanding clients,” in which “successful teams handled multiple jobs over the relevant period, showing that clients frequently turned in their direction when the going got tough.”
  • Litigation: This category identifies firms that were “frequently able to get good results,” noting that “getting decisions overturned on appeal or persuading regulators not to take matters further are signs of excellent lawyering, especially in a principles-based field where grey areas abound.”

Tim Hickman, partner and head of the Firm’s Data, Privacy & Cybersecurity practice, said: “These rankings reflect our commitment to helping clients successfully navigate complex AI, data, and cyber challenges around the world.”

GDR’s profile of White & Case described the Firm’s “ability to handle complex work spanning multiple jurisdictions for some of the world’s most demanding clients” and “cross-industry excellence.” One client noted the team’s “outstanding performance,” while another said, “The responsiveness of the partners and the pragmatic advice really sets them apart.”

Economic activity in Brazil rose for the fourth straight month in February, a central bank index showed on Wednesday.

The IBC-Br economic activity index, considered a leading indicator of gross domestic product, increased by a seasonally adjusted 0.4%, matching expectations from analysts polled by Reuters, and following a revised 0.52% increase in January.

Recent official data revealed unexpected growth in the retail sector in February, while the services sector and industrial output surprisingly dropped in Brazil.

Meanwhile, the largest economy in Latin America created a net 306,111 formal jobs in February, beating estimates.

On a non-seasonally adjusted basis, the IBC-Br expanded by 2.59% since February of last year and grew by 2.34% on a 12-month basis.

Depois de lançar o Magalu Cloud em dezembro do ano passado, o Magazine Luiza quer começar a escalar seu negócio de nuvem pública.

A varejista, que marca presença na segunda edição do Web Summit Rio com a presidente Luiza Trajano, anuncia ao público nesta terça-feira os três primeiros serviços oferecidos pela plataforma com foco em armazenamento, segurança e identidade.

A gigante do varejo brasileiro aposta no mercado de infraestrutura de nuvem desde 2021, mas só no ano passado abriu os serviços para consumidores. Até o momento, há cem clientes PJ e cerca de 700 pessoa física — todos vindos por indicações e redes de contatos do Magalu, explica Christian Reis (Kiko), diretor da Magalu Cloud.

Clientes dos setores de varejo, saúde, tecnologia e industrial já utilizam o serviço de nuvem desde o ano passado, mas esta é a primeira vez que o Magazine Luiza passa a oferecer a plataforma ao público em geral. Para isso, a empresa acelerou investimentos, reforçou as operações de software e realizou testes de carga para atender a demanda.

Agora, com o início da oferta ao público em geral, a Magalu Cloud se diz pronta para atender o mercado e para ampliar sua participação no setor. Os serviços passam a ficar disponíveis a partir de hoje ao público em geral e podem ser contratados pelo site. A plataforma é voltada tanto para desenvolvedores quanto startups e empresas de maior porte.

Parceria com a Dell

O Magalu Cloud está lançando três serviços: um de armazenamento de dados escalável (object storage), uma solução de gerenciamento de contas corporativas e colaboradores, fornecedores ou terceiros (chamado Turia IAM) e outra de autenticação integrada, em que o usuário acessa diversos serviços online por meio de uma conta única (ID Magalu).

Uma das estratégias para acelerar o crescimento do negócio foi firmar uma parceria com a Dell na frente de object storage e assim já chegar a mais clientes. A ideia é que os clientes da Dell passem a aproveitar o Magalu Cloud para fazer backups de volumes grandes de dados ou transferir novos dados para a plataforma, otimizando o tempo que uma máquina física própria de armazenamento exigiria.

Vale has officially announced that all the electricity used in its operations in Brazil in 2023 came from renewable sources, such as hydroelectric, wind and solar power plants. Thus, the company has achieved its goal of having 100% renewable electricity consumption in Brazil two years ahead of schedule, which was 2025.

The information is highlighted in the 2023 edition of the Integrated Report, which includes more environmental, social and diversity advances made by the company.

Having reached the target, Vale has zeroed its indirect CO2 emissions in Brazil, which correspond to scope 2. The company still has the challenge of achieving 100% renewable energy consumption in its global operations by 2030. At the moment, this indicator stands at 88.5%.

The start-up of the Sol do Cerrado solar complex in November 2022 was key to achieving the target two years ahead of schedule. Located in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, the solar complex represented an investment of US$ 590 million by Vale. It is one of the largest solar energy parks in Latin America, with an installed capacity of 766 Megawatts-peak, equivalent to the consumption of a city of 800,000 inhabitants. In July 2023, the complex reached its maximum capacity. It has the potential of contributing to around 16% of all the electricity consumed by Vale in Brazil.

In its global operations, Vale is also moving towards 100% renewable energy consumption by 2030. The company invests in joint venture partnerships, renewable generation certificates in contracts (PPAs) and innovation initiatives for better efficiency in the use of batteries.

Scope 1: alternative fuels and biocarbon

Vale is also working to reduce its direct Scope 1 emissions. In the mines and railroads, where diesel (a fossil fuel) is currently intensively consumed, the company is studying the adoption of alternative fuels, such as ethanol for trucks and green ammonia for locomotives. In the pelletizing furnaces, the strategy is to replace anthracite, a type of mineral coal, with zero-emission biocarbon, made from the carbonization of biomass.

Last year, Vale signed an agreement with Wabtec for the supply of three electric locomotives and the start of studies into the development of a green ammonia-powered locomotive engine. The company also produced pellets with 100% biocarbon for the first time in an industrial test.

A record soybean harvest in Brazil’s southernmost state should offset losses in the drought-hit center west, keeping a lid on prices in the world’s largest producer and exporter and slowing the pace of sales, according to local farmers and cooperatives.

Rio Grande do Sul will produce 68% more soybeans this season than last, according to estimates from national crop agency Conab, which said Thursday the state would regain the post of Brazil’s No.2 producer after Mato Grosso. Another state crop agency Emater projects a record crop of 22.25 million metric tons, up 71.5% from a year ago.
That marks a dramatic comeback after two straight years of drought in southern Brazil and neighboring Argentina. In the current crop, the El Nino weather pattern has hammered soybean farmers in Brazil’s top-producing state of Mato Grosso but compensated with strong yields in the south.


Brazil will produce an estimated 146.5 million tons of soybeans this season, according to Conab, which had forecast 162 million tons in October, before the strong El Nino ravaged fields in center-west Brazil. In Mato Grosso, where Conab forecasts a drop of 7.5 million tons in soy production this year, global grain merchants often buy directly from farmers. But in Rio Grande do Sul they tend to deal with cooperatives set up in the late 1950s initially to help wheat producers store and sell the crop, said Enio Schroeder, vice-president at Cotrijal, the state’s largest farm coop, with more than 16,000 members.

Love Together Brasil is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Piancó, Paraíba.

The idea to establish Love Together Brasil was born in 2014, inspired by Geralda Sarraf, a native of Piancó who lives in New York, and her American friend Kristen Campagna.

The idealism and altruism of the friends became a reality, with the help of friends and volunteers, starting in April 2015, when Love Together Brasil, officially established, began its work in underprivileged communities in the hinterlands of Paraíba.

The goal of Love Together Brasil is to carry out, with the support of volunteers and the partnership of companies and public and private institutions, specific actions in education, health, and water supply.

In the last three years, the activities of Love Together Brasil have been intensified to alleviate the problem of water scarcity in underprivileged communities in the Northeast region, notably in Paraíba, with the drilling/installation of artesian wells in Daycares, Schools, Hospitals, and Urban and Rural Communities, through the “WATER FOR THOSE WHO ARE THIRSTY” Project, benefiting thousands of people.

Through this project, with the help of donors and volunteers, Love Together Brasil has delivered 50 (fifty) artesian wells, contributing to improving the living conditions of approximately 150,000 people in the Metropolitan Region of the Vale do Piancó, which covers 18 (eighteen) municipalities in the hinterlands of Paraíba.

In addition to carrying out specific actions in Education and Health, our mission is to bring potable water to underprivileged communities in the northeastern hinterland, promoting the socioeconomic development of regions affected by frequent droughts, intense heat, and water scarcity.

Diversidade no centro da gestão

Brazilian tourism officials are hoping to change the country’s image as a mere haven for scantily clad beachgoers by hosting U.N. climate talks next year in the Amazon rainforest city of Belem that will focus on environmental sustainability and ending deforestation to slow global warming

The summit is expected to boost Brazil’s attractiveness as an ecotourism destination and increase travel to its Amazon rainforest and other biomes that offer the world’s greatest biodiversity, Tourism Minister Celso Sabino said.

Only 9% of current visitors to Brazil are ecotourists, while almost two out of every three tourists come for sun and beach, he said in an interview late on Tuesday.
“Tourism is essential for the sustainability and preservation of forests, bringing needed economic development for the local inhabitants,” he said.
Drawing more environmental and adventure travelers is part of the government’s plan to increase overall tourism in Brazil, which is low in comparison with other countries. Tourism contributes less than 8% of Brazil’s GDP, compared to more than 20% in Spain, Portugal or the Dominican Republic, he said.
Sabino is working on expanding flights to Brazil and will be at the Seatrade Cruise Global fair in Miami next week to discuss increasing the number of cruise ship visits to Brazilian ports.
All steps to raise foreign and domestic tourism are welcomed by private businesses complaining that the number of tourists remains stagnant and below the pre-pandemic level.
“Brazil has a natural vocation for ecotourism given its unique biodiversity. There is an enormous potential to be tapped,” said Marina Figueiredo, executive president of Braztoa, the Brazilian tour operators association.
Tourists worldwide are looking for new experiences with nature and wildlife, Figueiredo told Reuters.
“COP30 next year will be more than just a conference. It is a very strategic event that will showcase Brazil as a country that protects the environment and preserves nature,” she said.

Brazilian consumption taxes are highly complex. Different levels of government have the authority to levy taxes on consumption, leading to the coexistence of multiple taxes, each governed by distinct rules. This complexity creates numerous challenges, such as tax competition between states and conflicts of jurisdiction among different tiers of government.

Despite doubts about the possibility of tax reform in Brazil, the long-awaited simplification of the tax system has finally been enacted after nearly four decades of discussions and several unsuccessful attempts.

Current Brazilian consumption tax system

The Brazilian Federal Constitution of 1988 granted the authority to levy consumption taxes to all levels of government — federal, state, and municipal. As a result, Brazil operates with multiple layers of taxation, with various taxes existing concurrently. This constitutional framework delineates the division of taxation responsibilities regarding goods and services.

Brazilian tax reform

On 20 December 2023, Brazil approved the long-awaited reform, replacing the existing consumption taxes with a dual VAT system comprising a subnational VAT (imposto sobre bens e serviços, IBS) and a federal VAT (contribuição sobre bens e serviços, CBS). Both federal and subnational VAT will share key features, such as the taxable transaction and base, and will operate on a non-cumulative basis following the destination principle.

Implications for foreign remote sellers

Foreign remote sellers currently have no tax compliance obligations in Brazil. Unlike many other countries, Brazil has not implemented special regulations mandating remote sellers to collect Brazilian consumption taxes on digital services provided to Brazilian customers.

Although the proposed reform does not explicitly outline rules for foreign sellers of digital services, some initial insights can be drawn based on its overarching principles. Under the Brazilian dual VAT system, taxable transactions will include both domestic and import transactions involving tangible goods, intangible goods, and services. The destination principle will apply to both cross-border transactions and domestic ones, but the criteria for determining the customer’s location will be specified in the complementary law. As a result, services provided by foreign sellers will be subject to taxation in Brazil. However, the specific tax collection mechanism Brazil will adopt has yet to be determined. If tax collection obligations are imposed on foreign sellers, they will face significant challenges in determining the customer’s location and the applicable tax rate, which may vary from one municipality to another.

Concluding remarks

The Brazilian tax reform aims to address long-standing issues of tax competition and jurisdictional conflicts among different levels of government. Once fully implemented, it is expected to simplify taxation and enhance tax administration and compliance. The new system will align more closely with international tax principles and will also encompass digital services provided by remote sellers to Brazilian customers. However, clarity is still needed regarding the application of tax collection responsibilities. Furthermore, the tax reform is anticipated to stimulate foreign investments in Brazil. Many companies interested in investing in the country currently hesitate due to the complexity of the tax system. However, the cost reductions resulting from the reform may lead to increased interest in establishing a local presence in Brazil.

Há séculos, mulheres pioneiras lideram transformações no Brasil. Seja na gestão pública, no empreendedorismo social, na ciência, na tecnologia ou na educação, elas seguem abrindo caminhos para que outras lideranças femininas alcancem patamares cada vez mais altos no futuro.

Não à toa, a presença de mulheres na liderança começa a dar sinais de crescimento no país. Segundo o Panorama Mulheres 2023, realizado pelo Talenses Group e pelo Insper, as CEOs mulheres passaram de 13%, em 2019, para 17% em 2022. Já no setor público, a porcentagem de mulheres em cargos de alta liderança saltou de 29% para 34%.

Porém, para que os grandes feitos dessas mulheres sejam reconhecidos devidamente, é preciso saber que elas existem.  Por isso, esta lista destaca 5 lideranças femininas que contribuíram e contribuem com esse cenário de pioneirismo no país. Confira a seguir:

1. Nísia Floresta (1810-1885)

Aos 22 anos, Nísia Floresta escreveu o livro “Direitos das mulheres e injustiça dos homens”, o primeiro entre outras 14 obras publicadas pela educadora, jornalista e poetisa em defesa dos Direitos Humanos no Brasil. Geralmente, utilizava os veículos para propagar ideais republicanos, abolicionistas e defensores dos  direitos de mulheres, escravizados e indígenas.

2. Antonieta de Barros (1901-1952)

Dois anos depois da conquista do voto feminino, Antonieta de Barros (1901-1952) se tornou a terceira mulher e a primeira parlamentar negra a ser eleita no Brasil, em 1935. Filha de ex-escravizada e natural de Florianópolis (SC), a deputada tinha a educação como causa e ofício.

3. Nise da Silveira (1905-1999)

A psiquiatra alagoana Nise da Silveira é pioneira em muitas áreas: uma das primeiras mulheres a se formar em Medicina no Brasil, foi a única em uma turma de mais de 150 homens. Também foi pioneira da psicologia junguiana no país, bem como das pesquisas sobre a relação emocional de pacientes com animais.

Mas seu grande legado está no uso da arte como tratamento para transtornos mentais. Quando coordenou o Centro Psiquiátrico Nacional Pedro II, no Rio de Janeiro, Nise partiu na contramão das técnicas utilizadas nos sanatórios da época, que geralmente envolviam lobotomia, camisas de força e confinamento.

4. Adriana Barbosa (1978)

Nascida e criada em São Paulo (SP), Adriana Barbosa trilha o caminho do empreendedorismo desde os 12 anos de idade, quando ajudava a complementar a renda da família. Mesmo trabalhando na área de Comunicação, ela seguiu frequentando feiras de empreendedorismo, o que a motivou a criar um evento que valorizasse a cultura negra nesses espaços. Assim nasceu a Feira Preta. A empreendedora foi a primeira mulher negra a ser indicada na lista de Inovadores Sociais do Mundo, pelo Fórum Econômico Mundial.

5. Karen Santos (1992)

A trajetória de empreendedorismo social da designer Karen Santos nasceu a partir de uma dor pessoal: a escassez de mulheres pretas no mercado digital. Quando migrou para a área de UX (Experiência do Usuário), sentiu a necessidade de trocar experiências com outras profissionais negras.

Por isso, a UX para Minas Pretas nasceu como uma comunidade, mas rapidamente se tornou uma startup de educação (edtech), com objetivo de capacitar mulheres negras na área de UX Design.

The Brazilian Music Foundation is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2024 and has prepared a wonderful concert of Brazilian rhythms and styles which will be presented on May 9th, 2024 at the National Opera Center America.

We will continue to present the best of Brazilian music and also help children in Brazil through our program “The Future of Our Children”.


Our music is our story!

With it we found musical textures, like Lundu, Maxixe, Choro, Samba, Bossa Nova, MPB, and many countless rhythms and musical genres. 

Brazil’s musical mix is the result of our ethnic and cultural mix. For example, the lundu was adapted by the curumins from the religious songs of the Jesuits, while the chorinho evolved from the mixture of European music brought by the Portuguese court and the street festivals enlivened by the atabaques of African slaves. This fruitful mixture germinated in our imagination, creating a fusion between popular and classical elements.

The communion of ethnic miscegenation with the creative imagination gave rise to our national character and its captivating musicality. The broad and deep links between the history of Brazilian music and its social and cultural elements are demonstrated in this concert.


The concert showcases the richness and variety of Brazilian Rhythms. We will travel together through the history of Brazilian musical styles; showing the diversity of pitches, tones, sounds, and musical colors. The story will be brought to life by a select group of virtuoso musicians.

The chosen repertoire will present the diversity of sounds from each era, the work of several musicians who were part of the history of Brazilian music.

From lundu to MPB, we will present some musical hits by artists like; Chiquinha Gonzaga, Ernesto Nazareth, Villa Lobos, Francisco Mignone, Donga, Ary Barroso, Cartola, Dorival Caymmi, Tom Jobim,  Zequinha de Abreu,  Nelson Cavaquinho, João  Gilberto, Luiz Gonzaga, and more…

From Classical sounds to profound popular lyrics, you will be delighted to hear some famous songs that have touched the lives of so many people around the world! We hope you will be moved by the wonderful sounds of Brazilian Music!
