Leadership Discussion Series: A Conversation with the Governor of the State of Mato Grosso, Blairo Maggi
In an effort to provide Brazilian leaders with greater exposure to the Washington policy community and advance understanding of Brazilian issues in the United States, the Brazil Institute held the fourth interactive forum of its ongoing leadership discussion series with Governor Blairo Borges Maggi, of the state of Mato Grosso, which has part of its territory in the Amazon biome. The intent of Maggi's visit to the United States was to highlight his administration's efforts to balance and produce positive results for both forest conservation and economic development.
