In the current global context, internationalization is essential for the progress of the State, municipalities and organizations in Mato Grosso. In this article, I will address the importance of this process in all these areas. My international experiences, which range from an internship on a farm in the USA, in 2008, to my doctorate in Germany, between 2015 and 2018, and more recently, since 2020, as Secretary of International Relations at UFMT, have consolidated my conviction that Internationalization can be a strategic tool to boost sustainable development in our state.

Have you ever wondered what internationalization is? The answer goes beyond mere geographic displacements. It is a dynamic process of integration and collaboration between different entities, be they states, municipalities, organizations or individuals, with other actors and systems around the world. This exchange of knowledge, technologies and resources on a global scale is essential to stimulate global trade, but also to boost local economic, social and cultural development.

Internationalization is not limited to state borders, being a dynamic force that goes beyond geographical and political barriers. In Mato Grosso, this is reflected in the need to establish partnerships and collaborations with international entities to promote economic, social and environmental development. Through cooperation and exchange agreements, the state can strengthen its position on the global stage, attract foreign investment and promote the internationalization of its industries and products.

The municipalities of Mato Grosso also have a lot to gain from internationalization. By engaging in international cooperation initiatives, they can access resources, knowledge and technologies that contribute to sustainable local development. Through partnerships with foreign cities, municipalities can exchange experiences, promote tourism, strengthen the small, medium and large agro-industrial sector, in addition to improving urban infrastructure. In this way, internationalization becomes a powerful tool to boost growth and quality of life throughout the state.

In addition to the governmental sphere, organizations in Mato Grosso can also reap the benefits of internationalization. Whether companies, educational institutions or civil society organizations, everyone can benefit from expanding their networks and operations to the global market. Through initiatives such as product exports, research partnerships and exchange programs, organizations can position themselves competitively in an increasingly interconnected world. More than ever, internationalization becomes an essential strategy to guarantee the relevance and sustainability of organizations in Mato Grosso. Therefore, internationalization proves to be a necessary and inescapable journey for the state, municipalities and organizations in Mato Grosso.

By adopting this approach with determination and strategic vision, we will open new horizons of opportunity and prosperity for all. It is necessary to recognize the transformative potential of internationalization, as, without a doubt, it will actively contribute to building an even more vibrant and globally connected future for our beloved and great Mato Grosso.
