Brazil’s energy sector is in a state of dynamic transition and uncertainty. A new President was recently elected and the outcome of that election will affect whether regulatory change will continue at the same pace, slow down or change direction.

In addition, the crisis pervading the U.S. energy sector, along with the world economic downturn has caused energy companies to re-think their positions in Brazil. Some are selling assets and leaving the market. Other players are entering or taking bigger positions.

Attend CBI’s 8th Annual Brazil Energy conference, March 20-21, 2003 in Miami, FL. Gain insight into the impact of these changes, details of the progress being made, future plans, and lessons learned by the government and energy sector participants in the process.
