AmCham Rio’s new board inauguration


AmCham Rio's new board inauguration

In a ceremony at Copacabana Palace on May 12, AmCham Rio introduced its new board of directors during the 2017-2018 biennium. The inauguration, sponsored by Domingues and Pinho Contadores among others, consecrated IBM Brazil’s Vice President for Latin America, Pedro Almeida, as Amcham’s President and welcomed well-known personalities such as Minister of Finance, Henrique Meirelles, Mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Marcello Crivella, and P. Michael McKinley, U.S. Ambassador to Brazil. Mr. Manuel Domingues e Pinho, DPC’s Chief Executive Officer, who had held the position of Chief Financial Officer during the 2016-2017 biennium, continued to serve on AmCham's Board.

The Minister Henrique Meirelles gave an optimism message, especially highlighting the economy growth through actions such as the constitutional amendment to limit public spending. "The economy has already begun to increase. We had strong and positive growth in the first quarter-year, although this has not influenced yet the generation of employment", he said, adding that the Brazilian economy is getting the way and returning to normality.
