Now, if during the first two decades of the 21st century Brazil was building, in the words of Marco Aurelio García, then international adviser to the Workers' Party ( pt ), a "South American option" as the articulating axis of foreign policy, with Bolsonaro it it would take a turn towards a "North American option" and an abandonment of South America as a priority Whatsapp Mobile Number List space for Brazil's international projection. In this way, the groups linked to agribusiness and transnational financial capital –which, it is worth clarifying, generate little employment and innovation– became the Bolsonarista government's great commitment to economic growth and the modernization of Brazilian capitalism, establishing as a horizon the models from Mexico and Chile. In this sense, it is not by chance that Bolsonaro's first visit to a country in the region was to Chile and not to Argentina, as was tradition.
The consolidation of this new power bloc in favor of economic openness would have concrete effects on regionalism and South American politics in Brazil: a good part of the Whatsapp Mobile Number List construction and industrial companies, favorable to integration, were practically destroyed by Lava Jato. This meant that they lost weight in the Whatsapp Mobile Number List and, with it, their ability to influence the economic course and the orientation of foreign policy. In this context, the ruling classes would come to view with suspicion the participation in the brics , the strategic alliance with Argentina and the prioritization of the South American market, and would begin to pressure to reorient foreign policy towards the North.10. In other words, Bolsonaro went on to represent the economic sectors that ask for "less integration" and more economic openness.
Under this program of neoliberal orthodoxy, Bolsonaro made his first visit to Washington, in March 2019, and signed the Agenda for Prosperity with Trump, the Whatsapp Mobile Number List framework agreement that laid the foundations for the alignment policy with the United States . On the political level, this became evident in the criticism of multilateralism and in the support for the formation of a sort of conservative international alliance to counter.
