    As the sixth BRICS Summit takes place in Brazil (July 14 - 16), it remains to be seen what role the BRICS - individually and collectively - will play in the ever-more integrated global markets. The case of Brazil is one of great progress and unbounded potential constrained by formidable challenges, and the country's economic identity remains ill understood all around the world. Join us as we launch "Brazil's Economic Identity: Motivations and Expectations" with World Bank senior advisor Otaviano Canuto, exploring Brazil's role in the global economy - its potential and its remaining challenges - in the context of the BRICS Summit.

    Open to the public, but seating is limited. To RSVP, send confirmation to the Americas Program at
