Two Great Friends, One Brilliant Future
On May 26, 1824, U.S. President James Monroe received Brazilian Charge d’Affaires Jose Silvestre Rebello in Washington, D.C., to recognize Brazil’s independence and establish diplomatic relations with the newly born state. Two hundred years later, Brazil remains a key partner and friend to the United States, a relationship that grows stronger and more important each day.
In honor of this connection, the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Brazil are planning a year-long celebration of the historic ties binding our nations. Throughout 2024, across the country through cultural events, seminars, exchange programs, and joint initiatives with Brazilian partners, we will highlight our shared commitments to:
- Celebrating the rich diversity of our people, our culture and history
- Democracy, human rights, and investing in human capacity
- Caring for our planet, sustainability, and addressing the climate crisis
- Caring for the health of our people
- Securing the future by improving citizen and border security
- Feeding the world
- Fostering prosperity for all through economic partnership and job creation
- Partnering for the future to use technology to improve lives
The partnership and diplomatic ties between Brazil and the United States have made it possible for our countries to develop into two of the most diverse, thriving democracies in the world. Please join us as we commemorate this historic milestone and continue our work to build a brighter future for all.
The celebrations will highlight the strong political, economic, and cultural ties between the United States and Brazil
