In December I was at an event called BlockchainGov, here in Rio de Janeiro(BR), where I met Suzana Moreno. Suzana Moreno works on BNDES with Blockchain initiatives. She made an invite to Cardano for a blockchain Focus Group assessment .
Wiki:“BNDES is one of the largest development banks in the world (after the Chinese Development Bank, which boasts assets of around RMB 7.52 trillion, or around $1.2 tn)”.
I think BNDES will support the assessment. Some blockchain specialists in Rio are involved with the initiative.
We talked briefly about Cardano and Suzana informed me about a very interesting opportunity at International Telecommunication Union(ITU), United Nations (UN) . The assessment I mentioned above.
Wiki:“The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the UN agency specialized in information and communication technologies.”

The next ITU meeting will be on February, in Spain. Maybe it could interest someone from Spanish community/Cardano to support that.
The Brazilian meetup was on January. I’ve contacted Emurgo in 05/December/2018, but I think there weren’t enough human resources to that. Because they started to reply me and Suzana Moreno on the e-mail and after the second message, we haven’t got any new reply.
The task would be filling 4 small documents and attend some meetings for the assessment.
Thanks for the help!
