WASHINGTON—Bilateral defense trade relationships, especially among NATO allies, are critical to U.S. defense policy and defense cooperation. Today, however, as the United States is considering increasing military imports from foreign countries such as Brazil, potential pitfalls need to be analyzed. How might American interests be jeopardized by anti-American sentiment in Brazil, the objectives of Brazilian foreign policy, and the state’s role in defense industry exercised, in part, through subsidies?
In short, how reliable can Brazil be as a procurement partner for the United States?
Please join Hudson Institute Senior Fellows Seth Cropsey, the former Deputy Undersecretary of the U.S. Navy, and Jaime Daremblum, the former Costa Rican Ambassador to the United States, for a brief media conference call to examine these issues.
