O que é este blog?

Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

Brasil-OCDE: seminario sobre politica comercial - FGV-SP

OECD: Dialogue on Trade in Brazil -- New Challenges in International Trade

The São Paulo School of Economics - FGV, the Center on Global Trade and Investment Studies (CGTI), the WTO Chair and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) invite you to the conference “OECD: Dialogue on Trade in Brazil -- New Challenges in International Trade.”

Transformations in global trade from global value chains and digitalization are bringing new opportunities for participation in international trade. At the same time, the external environment is challenging, with persistently slow trade - and global - growth and rising protectionist barriers. These developments underscore the need to connect trade to domestic economic policy, to promote the domestic reforms that enable opportunities to be seized and processes of adjustment to be managed, helping trade to contribute to more inclusive growth and employment. Against this background, it is timely to look again at the issues and challenges for policy-making, globally and in Brazil.

The Conference will happen in November 21st 2017, from 8h30 to 18h30, at the Auditório Itaú da FGV-SP at Av. 9 de Julho, 2029. The Conference will bring together practitioners, policymakers and business leaders around the world who are engaged in trade discussions, issues and negotiations administered by the OECD and the WTO.

Programme

08h30-09h00
Registration & Welcome coffee

09h00-09h45
Opening Session

Ambassador Carlos Márcio Cozendey, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE)
Marcelo Pacheco dos Guaranys, Deputy Minister for Public Policies, Ministry of Chief of Staff
Fernando Alcaraz, Undersecretary for Regional Integration and Foreign Trade, Ministry of Finance (MF)
Ken Ash, Director of the OECD Trade and Agriculture Directorate
Vera Thorstensen, Professor, Center for Global Trade and Investment (CCGI-EESP/FGV)

09h45-10h45
Agricultural Trade:
Changes in global agricultural markets and policies since the end of the Uruguay Round suggest that it is timely to look again at what this means for priorities in the multilateral agricultural trade reform agenda. Global value chains in food and agriculture are another important development and discussion could explore Brazil's current role, the policies that affect participation, and how to increase the benefits from participation.

Ken Ash, Director of the OECD Trade and Agriculture Directorate
Alexandre Pontes Pontes, Nontariff Negotiations Division, Ministry of Agriculture Livestock and Supply (MAPA)
Lígia Dutra Silva, Head of International Office, Brazilian Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock (CNA)

10h45-11h00
Coffee-Break

11h00-12h00
Global Value Chains:
On-going OECD work examining the impact on GVC participation of Rules of Origin and Non-Tariff Measures in FTAs, the determinants of participation of SMEs in GVCs, and in-depth analysis of selected sectors may include additional insights for Brazil.
Julia Nielson Head of the Development Division, Trade and Agriculture Directorate (OECD)
José Serrador, Director of Government Relations, EMBRAER

12h00-13h00
Services:
Contribute significantly to all our economies and represent an under exploited potential in Brazil to sustain productivity gains and international competitiveness. Areas with important potential for regulatory reform include improvements in the general business and trading environment, as well as specific policies in transport sectors, telecoms and financial services. Reforms targeting services that add value by favouring productivity and quality enhancements, as well as services that increase efficiency by reducing production costs have strong potential to unlock manufacturing performance.

Ken Ash, Director of the OECD Trade and Agriculture Directorate
Jorge Arbache Filho, Secretary for International Affairs, Ministry of Planning, Management and Budget (MPOG)
João Augusto Baptista Neto, Special Advisor, Foreign Trade Council (CAMEX)
Lucas Ferraz, Professor, São Paulo School of Economics (EESP/FGV)

13h00-13h45
Light lunch

13h45-14h45
Trade and investment:
Investment can drive competitiveness by streamlining sector-level regulatory frameworks to encourage foreign entry and competition, and pursuing cross-cutting improvements in the trade and business environment. In Brazil, for example, programs promoting private investments in transport and logistics infrastructure can be coupled with efforts to improve clarity in the tendering process for concessions, as well as a development of the capacity and independence of regulatory agencies overseeing infrastructure owners and users. Similarly, reforming local content requirements can address the lack of competition that curtails innovation and inflates manufacturing inputs costs. On-going OECD work on trade and investment interdependencies aims to better understand how firm strategies combine a range of commercial activities, the distortions that influence firm decision-making and policies that can support structural adjustment while mitigating negative impacts.

Ken Ash, Director of the OECD Trade and Agriculture Directorate
Marcela Carvalho, Executive Secretary, Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (CAMEX)
Constanza Negri Biasutti, Trade Policy Manager, National Confederation of Industry Brazil (CNI)

14h45-15h45
Digital trade:
Digitalisation is changing what and how we trade with wide-ranging implications for trade policy. Issues range from increased bundling of goods and services and increased volumes of small parcel trade to interoperability of standards and regulations affecting data flows. Discussion could focus on mapping and understanding the implications of digital trade for policy-makers. Work related to ICT and agriculture (e.g., for traceability) may also be of particular interest for Brazil.

Julia Nielson, Head of the Development Division, Trade and Agriculture Directorate (OECD)
Thiago Camargo Lopes, Secretary for Informatics Policies, Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications (MCTIC)
Marcelo Souza, Deputy Chief of SAG, Ministry of Chief of Staff
Carlos Primo Braga, Professor, Fundação Dom Cabral (FDC)

15h45-16h45
Trade Facilitation: Goods, Services and Investments
OECD has conducted an in-depth study on the state of play of trade facilitation in Brazil, based on the OECD Trade Facilitation Indicators (TFIs). The study highlights the overall TF performance of Brazil, as well as sectoral and regional performance differences. While Brazil has made significant progress in areas such as the automation and streamlining of procedures, opportunities to improve performance remain in domestic and cross-border agency co-operation. TF reforms are also important for participation in high- and medium-high tech GVCs, for which Brazil’s current level of integration appears below potential.

Julia Nielson, Head of the Development Division, Trade and Agriculture Directorate (OECD)
Abrão Miguel Árabe Neto, Secretary of Foreign Trade (SECEX), Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services (MDIC)
Thomaz Zanotto, Director of the Department of Trade and Foreign Affairs (DEREX), Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (FIESP)

16h45-17h00
Closing Session
Farewell Coffee.
