                            organizations seeking to expand
                            their operations. With fast-
                            growing mining and energy
                            industries, Brazil presents

                            multi-national companies. And

                            to doing business in Brazil? What
                            are the challenges organizations
                            face in sending travelers and
                            expatriates to work and live in
                            the country? What are best
                            practices to ensure the
                            employer's Duty of Care is met?
