BNDES gathers experiences from world development banks to start elaborating its long-term strategy
Four months after deeply reformulating its operational policies, the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) begins the process of internal reflection that will lead to the development of a medium and long-term strategy, with guidelines until 2030. By the end of the year, a cycle of discussions involving the Bank’s technical staff will discuss what should be the role and performance of BNDES in an economy with low inflation and interest rates. The first step last Friday (05/05) was the accomplishment of the international seminar “The role of development banks in the present and in the future: experiences, opportunities and challenges,” organized in partnership with the World Bank, which gathered executives from eight international institutions and employees from BNDES, for a whole day. The event also marked the beginning of a series of activities to celebrate the 65 years of BNDES, which will be completed in June.
