Welcome to the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment

Nota do blog: Você vê aqui a transcrição do texto de abertura da página oficial do "Centro Vale-Columbia de Investimento Estrangeiro Sustentável". Ele foi criado por iniciativa da Companhia mineradora brasileira Vale, que doou US$ 1,500,000 (um milhão e meio de dólares) à prestigiosa Universidade de Columbia, Nova Iorque, através do "Earth Institute", chefiado pelo economista Jeffrey Sachs, autor de "The End of Poverty" ("O Fim da Pobreza"). O objetivo deste centro é "promover pesquisas orientadas à definição de políticas, assim como trabalhos práticos relacionados ao tema dos investimentos estrangeiros diretos" (FDI, sigla em inglês).

The Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment (VCC) seeks to be a leader on issues related to foreign direct investment (FDI) in the global economy, paying special attention to the sustainability dimension of this investment. It focuses on the analysis and teaching of the implications of FDI for public policy and international investment law. Its objectives are to analyze important topical policy-oriented issues related to FDI, develop and disseminate practical approaches and solutions, and provide students with a challenging learning environment.

The Vale Columbia Center, formerly the Columbia Program on International Investment (CPII), is a joint undertaking of Columbia Law School and The Earth Institute at Columbia University. It was established thanks to a grant by Vale, the world's second largest diversified mining company. Click here to view the press release.
