Our eternal gratitude to all the speakers that honored the U.S.-Brazil Chamber of Commerce and the economic development of both countries.

They showed to everyone how committed they are to their job with their support, friendship, gifts, talents, skills, knowledge and precious time.

The U.S. Brazil Chamber of Commerce hosted 13 powerful business breakfasts in the City of Doral that sent shock waves through U.S. and Brazil.
