In an interview with CNN this Tuesday (6), Alexandre Cordeiro Macedo, president of Cade and future member of the commission of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), assessed that joining the Competition committee allows Brazil “to have more voice on the international scene” .
“Being in the OECD brings the importance of being part of a group of rich countries, in which ties are strengthened in order to be able to create public policies that bring economic development”, he declared.
“It is an institution heard internationally, and the whole world looks at the OECD and treats it differently. Being part of this select group gives Brazil more voice on the international stage.”
Elected as one of the members of the executive board of the entity’s competition committee, Cordeiro became the first Brazilian to reach the top ranks of the OECD.
In addition to him, Ilan Goldfajn was elected president of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
In Cordeiro’s view, these nominations “show Brazil’s willingness to participate more actively in discussions, but also show the world’s desire to have Brazil close by”.
“Everyone knows Brazil’s capacity as a consumer market and that it is an important country not only on the international stage, but specifically in Latin America.”
