Dilma Rousseff is visiting Pres. Obama today, and she’s saying she welcomes U.S. business . . . while keeping Brazil’s protectionism:
Her visit comes amid a widening investigation into alleged price-fixing and corruption surrounding government-controlled oil giant Petróleo Brasileiro SA, or Petrobras. Several Brazilian companies are being investigated in connection with the scandal. Some are cooperating with investigators; some have denied wrongdoing. Some of those executives who have made plea deals have alleged that Ms. Rousseff’s campaign received some of the illegal funds.
Her party created the Foro de Sao Paulo (initially named Meeting of Left and Anti-imperialist Parties and Organizations of Latin America) in 1990.
