Brazil has just joined a global trend toward tougher privacy laws with a bold new statute, the Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais or “LGPD” – imposing major new obligations on all companies that touch Brazilian consumers. 
This event will explore how companies, across business sectors and around the globe, now must plan for compliance.  What new data privacy and security obligations will companies now have to honor in the day to day?  What will life be like in a world where data breaches in Brazil must now be publicly disclosed?  How can companies learn from the US experience with cybersecurity law and from the European experience with GDPR?  In light of the election results, how will Brazil actually enforce the LGPD when it takes effect in 2020? 
Please join the Chamber as an expert panel explores these questions and more.

Economic Observer
Strong GDP Growth, Inflation on Target, Rates Hold Steady

Overview: While it was another volatile week in the stock market, it was a relatively quiet stretch for mortgage rates. Mixed economic data and the European Central Bank (ECB) meeting caused little reaction, and mortgage rates ended the week nearly unchanged. 

The first reading for third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP), the broadest measure of economic growth, was 3.5%, above the consensus of 3.3%. Combined with even greater growth of 4.2% during the second quarter, these were the strongest back-to-back quarters since 2014. Consumer and government spending were up, while business investment was somewhat weak. The question for investors is whether this impressive pace will continue.

The most recent inflation data revealed that it is holding steady at lower than expected levels. In September, the core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) Price Index, which excludes the volatile food and energy components, was 2.0% higher than a year ago, the same annual rate of increase as last month. This is the monthly inflation indicator favored by Fed officials, and 2.0% matches their stated target level.

There were no significant surprises from Thursday's European Central Bank (ECB) meeting. Despite future uncertainty related to the British exit from the European Union and Italy's contentious budget negotiations, the ECB made no change in interest rates and confirmed its plans to conclude its bond purchases at the end of 2018.

Week Ahead
Looking ahead, the important monthly Employment Report will be released on Friday. As usual, these figures on the number of jobs, the unemployment rate, and wage inflation will be the most highly anticipated economic data of the month. Before that, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Manufacturing Index will come out on Thursday and the ISM Services Index on November 5. The next Federal Reserve meeting will take place on November 8.

Hello friends,


Brazilian Music Foundation is proud to announce its
 4th-annual Choro Festival , to be held on: 

Tuesday, November 6th , 2018 - 8:00pm
Doors open 7:30pm
Opera Center America Marc A. Scorca Hall
330 Seventh Ave.
7th Floor - New York City, NY 

Those who appreciate the genuine sound of Brazilian instrumental music will have the opportunity to enjoy the IV International Choro Festival in the City of New York. Brazilian Music Foundation (BMF), in partnership with Bossa Magazine, and Asuos Productions, will present the 4th Annual International Choro Festival, with a variety of interesting performances.
The festival first occurred in August 2015, and it was a great success. Due to this positive reception, we will continue with an annual performance. The event will provide an opportunity for everyone to learn about one of the oldest Brazilian musical genres, Choro and Brazilian Jazz.
The concert will pay tribute to Jacob do Bandolim,  one of the founders of the Choro music, named after his instrument “Mandolin”. The composer and musician was born Jacob Pick Bittencour to a Jewish-Brazilian mother and a gentile father in Rio de Janeiro in 1918. This exciting tribute to one of Brazil’s greatest Brazilian composers features creative arrangements by Alex Sobreira, ranging from the traditional to the experimental. In commemoration of the centennial of Jacob’s birth, Brazilian Music Foundation will  explore Jacob's legacy and influence.

Limited space

Tickets $ 35 ( general admission )
Jacob do Bandolim (“Mandolin Jacob”) was one of the most influential Brazilian composers in the 20th century. He composed a style known as choro, Brazil’s most important popular instrumental music genre, often compared to early jazz in the United States. In the 1950s, Jacob do Bandolim led a choro revival that helped make the style a central symbol of Brazilian national identity. A serious and dedicated musician, he instilled a high degree of professionalism in the traditionally relaxed music --even if he was never a professional himself (he made a living as pharmacist, insurance salesman, street vendor, and finally notary public, to support himself while also working "full time" as a musician). Jacob began his long musical career by plucking his instrument with a hairpin, and very soon developed into the greatest mandolin virtuoso Brazil has ever known.
He struggled to preserve the Brazilian roots, and fought to impose his artistic sincerity on the music industry. He left important compositions that were incorporated in the repertory of chorões. Jacob was able to achieve with his band Época de Ouro the highest level of quality. Jacob hated the stereotype of the "disheveled, drunk, folk musician" and required commitment and impeccable dress from his musicians who, like himself, all held "day jobs”.
His compositions virtually defined the choro style through the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, and he remains one of the most endearing figures in Brazilian music to this day.
About Choro
Brazilian Choro has roots jazz, and is considered Brazil’s first “urban pop” music. There are over 30 different types of rhythms in Brazilian Music. By presenting the diversity of our rhythms, we hope to encourage diverse musicians, music students, adults, and children to engage in creating music with a dynamic communicative style that is energetic, fun, creative, and very inspiring!
