Brazil President Joins World Social Forum But Skips Davos's World Economic Forum PDF Print E-mail
2012 - January 2012

World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff and seven ministers of state will participate on Thursday, January 26, in a special session at the World Social Forum in the capital of Brazil's southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul.

They will discuss the international financial crisis, public policy to combat poverty and guidelines for Brazil's participation in the United Nations Sustainable Development Conference - Rio + 20 - which will take place in Rio de Janeiro in June.

The World Social Forum was created in 2001 as a kind of developing nation counterpart to the World Economic Forum in Davos with the idea of working toward "a better possible world."

Although the Forum is apolitical, Brazilian government authorities have been a constant presence. Former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva attended all the Social Forums in Brazil, so Dilma is continuing this tradition.

In 2011, she did not attend but was represented by her top administrative aide, Gilberto Carvalho.

This year Dilma will be accompanied by minister Gilberto Carvalho and the ministers of Human Rights, Maria do Rosário; Environment, Izabella Teixeira; Social Development and Hunger Combat, Tereza Campello; Policies for Women, Iriny Lopes; Agriculture, Mendes Ribeiro; and Racial Equality, Luiza Helena de Bairros.

It is estimated that some 30,000 people will participate in the forum, which ends on Sunday, January 29.

This year Dilma Rousseff will not attend the World Economic Forum in Davos although Brazil is the focus of a number of events there. She will be represented by the Foreign Minister, Antonio Patriota, and the minister of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, Fernando Pimentel.

Davos World Economic Forum

Here is a great speech from last year's conference by Khan Manka, Jr. - who basically slammed the conference and the people who attend it.

And, much like Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes, he will be back again this year.
