As the honored guest of Brazilian Friends, TAU Prof. Manuel Trajtenberg spent three days in São Paulo speaking at several of Brazil’s most prestigious academic and research institutions.


The former Israeli Minister of Education and Chairman of the Planning and Budgeting Committee of the Council of Higher Education lectured on issues ranging from trends in today’s globalized world, economic issues, Israeli society, social policies, democracy and the impact of technology. Central to his discussion was the need for people, institutions and countries to be more flexible and responsive to an increasingly dynamic world.


Prof. Trajtenberg visited Insper, a Brazilian higher education institution that focuses on business, economics and engineering. There, he and former Mayor of São Paulo and Minister of Education Fernando Haddad held a friendly debate on educational policies and their impact on reducing social inequalities, with each highlighting his own country’s experiences. He also visited Brazil’s Central Bank, where he met its President Ilan Goldfajn, himself a former board member of Brazilian Friends.
