US Vice President Joe Biden began a three-day visit to Brazil today to meet government and business leaders as Washington gears up for a planned state visit by President Dilma Rousseff later this year.

After visiting Colombia and Trinidad and Tobago this week, Biden arrived in Rio de Janeiro, where he will address local authorities and business executives mid-day and tour a research facility operated by state-run energy company Petroleo Brasileiro SA, or Petrobras.

Tomorrow, he is scheduled to visit a hillside Rio slum before flying to Brasilia, the capital, for meetings Friday with Rousseff and Brazilian Vice President Michel Temer.

Among many pending business issues between the United States and Brazil are a longstanding effort to ease visa restrictions for travel between the two countries, lingering disagreements over trade barriers and a push by US companies for protection of intellectual property rights in a Brazilian marketplace rife with pirated software and technology.
