New Development Bank welcomed Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva at NDB Headquarters in Shanghai
On April 13, 2023, the New Development Bank (NDB) was honored to host H.E. Mr. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, President of Brazil, the First Lady, Janja Lula da Silva, and the accompanying delegation, including the President of the Senate, State Ministers and State Governors. The visit was also the first stop of the President’s official trip to China. This was the first time that a Head of State visited the Bank’s Headquarters in Shanghai and addressed the NDB staff in person. President Lula had the opportunity to witness the NDB’s commitment to promoting sustainable development and delivering on its mandate.
The New Development Bank is the product of a partnership among BRICS countries with a view to creating a world with less poverty, less inequality and more sustainability. In taking office as Bank President, Ms. Dilma Rousseff brings her extensive background and knowledge on public policies and the international scene, thus strengthening NDB’s leading role in achieving a better world, without poverty or hunger,” said H.E. Mr. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the President of Brazil.
