Brazil has made significant progress over the last few years in strengthening economic performance and enhancing social development. In particular, the benefits of increased prosperity have been shared more equitably across individuals and social groups. To build on these achievements, further reforms will be needed to lay the foundation
of stronger, more inclusive and more sustainable growth in the years to come.

the tenth anniversary of a constant and fruitful engagement

of Brazil in the ASU work. The OECD has benefited, and will

continue to benefit, from the contributions of a major player in

the aircraft industry, committed to maintaining a high value in

ASU disciplines.

Aid for Trade at a Glance, a joint OECD-WTO publication, provides

an analysis of trends and developments in aid that aim to

help developing countries integrate into the global economy

and benefit from trade opportunities. The latest publication,

launched in July 2013, focussed on global value chains and

private sector development, with a view to managing results.

Deputy Permanent

Representative from

the Embassy of Brazil

Understanding (ASU),

OECD headquarters,

The Competition Law adopted in 2011 is a major step towards
sound competition. The new law completed a process of
reform and modernisation of Brazil’s competition law and
policy started in 2003.

The OECD Competition Committee, which gathers the heads

of the world’s major competition authorities, is a source of

policy analysis and advice to governments on competition

law, effective competition law enforcement, and competition-

friendly regulation. Brazil underwent two Peer Reviews of

Competition Law and Policy carried out by the OECD, in 2005 and

in 2010. Since 1998 the Committee has published peer reviews

of well over 30 countries. These reviews assess how each

country deals with competition and regulatory issues, from the

soundness of its competition law to the structure

and effectiveness of its competition institutions. The review

includes an exam of the country report by an international

panel of experts.

Brazil’s 2011 competition law approval reflects several key

recommendations from OECD peer reviews, including:

l the introduction of a merger notification ex ante as well as a

system of double threshold for merger notification;

l a significant increase in the level of fines;

l tougher criminal sanctions with a fine and a prison sentence

instead of a choice between them;

l a streamlined Brazil Competition Policy System (BCPS).

The OECD also supports policy makers in their efforts to

improve public procurement. The OECD Project to Reduce Bid

Rigging in Latin America was launched in 2007 with projects

in Brazil and Chile. It was designed to assist competition

authorities in detecting and preventing bid-rigging in public

tenders. Cross-agency partnerships were established by the

Brazilian competition authorities, with the support of the OECD,
