Celac is in its seventh edition and was inaugurated in 2011, in Chile, to serve as a Latin American and Caribbean discussion forum that will be independent of the influence of the United States and Canada. For Kennedy, this return helped Brazil in discussing treaties with countries on other continents and with the United States.

“Brazil’s return to CELAC allows Brazil to return to being a leader in Latin America and the Caribbean, something Bolsonaro left behind. (…) Brazil is leaving isolation and gaining an important platform for integrating Latin America and important for the interests that Brazil has to discuss with the European Union, with the United States, and with China itself.”

Relations with Argentina. During News Analysis, Kennedy also pointed out that the bilateral meeting between Lula and the Argentine president, Alberto Fernandéz, continued the relationship with Argentina that had been dormant during Bolsonaro’s administration.

If BNDES provides the financing, there are real guarantees to support this contract so there is no default”.
