A Press Roundtable on President Dilma Rousseff's Visit to Washington

April 05, 2012 // 8:30am10:00am

The Inter-American Dialogue and the Woodrow Wilson Center hosted a special press roundtable to discuss Brazilian President Dilma’s Rousseff’s first visit to Washington.

President Rousseff is coming to Washington one year after President Obama’s visit to Brazil. The agenda they will be dealing with has not changed much in the interim. How to strengthen the economic relations between the two largest countries of the Americas was the central question when they met in Brazil, and it remains the key challenge today.

They will also discuss such global concerns as the uncertain state of the world economy, the governance of the World Bank and other international institutions,  and developments in Iran and other Middle Eastern  nations.  And with the sixth Summit of the Americas a week later, the two presidents will surely talk about regional challenges—such as Cuba, Haiti, and drug policy, as well crime and violence problems, rising protectionism in many countries, and perhaps the state of inter-American institutions.
