On 18 October 2018, the Faculty of Administration of the University of São Paulo hosted a Colloquium on the legal, economic and social implications of contract farming to celebrate the launch of the Portuguese version of the UNIDROIT-FAO-IFAD Legal Guide on Contract Farming, co-organised with UNIDROIT. UNIDROIT Senior Legal Officer Ms Frédérique Mestre participated in the opening of the event, with Professor Dr. Decio Zylbersztajn (University of São Paulo), Professor Dr. Moacir de Miranda Oliveira (University of São Paolo) and Professor Dr Kassia Watanabe (Universidade Federal do Reconcavo da Bahia), and subsequently presented UNIDROIT’s perspectives on the Legal Guide on Contract Farming. The Portuguese version of the guide owes its success to the team of translators, Professor Dr Iacyr de Aguilar Vieira (University of Viçoisa), Professor Dr Kassia Watanabe (Universidade Federal do Reconcavo da Bahia), Dr Nunziata Stefania Valenza Paiva (Justice of Goias Court of Justice), and Professor Dr. Regel Antonio Ferrazza (Univeristy of Viçoisa), who were also at the event.
