Wednesday, 21 February 2017, Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW): Premier Armin Laschet (NRW) received for a bilateral meeting HE Ambassador Mário Vilalva of the Federative Republic of Brazil at Government House in Düsseldorf.

Highlight of the meeting were the German-Brazilian Economic Days (Deutsch-Brasilianischen Wirtschaftstage), which in this year are taking place in NRW, or to be more precise between the 24 and 26 June 2018 at Cologne, the state’s economic hub. Last year the German-Brazilian Economic Days were held with more than 600 representatives of the two giant economies at Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Brazil is currently holding the rotating MERCOSUR chairmanship. MERCOSUR is a loose economic alliance formed by Brazil, the Argentine, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela (suspended as of 2016).

Ambassador Mário Vilalva heads the Brazilian Embassy in Berlin since 8 November 2016.
