All welcome! Refreshments will be provided for participants in the seminar. 


The Foreign Exchange regulation in Brazil has experienced a relevant modernisation and streamlining in recent years. Now, in the context of Brazilian accession to OECD, new challenges and opportunities to improve the regulation will take place and must be considered over the coming years. In this presentation will be discussed the key principles of the current Foreign Exchange regulation in Brazil, aspects of OECD’s and IMF’s institutional views on capital flows liberalisation and possibilities for further progress in the regulation.
