A young lawyer in Cotabato City has just completed a 30-day Rotary professional exchange program in Brazil in yet another opportunity where Cotabato City had been represented to an international event.

Lawyer Reza Cang Sinsuat, scion of the Sinsuat clan of Cotabato City and Maguindanao, was with four other Filipinos in the professional exchange program in Brazil that culminated shortly before the May 13 elections in the country.

The Philippine exchange team sent to the Rotary District 4770 in Brazil was comprised of Sinsuat, physician Jing Dablio-Dela Calzada, college professor Celeste Sagarbarria, John Morales, who is an elementary teacher, and a government tourism officer, Gurlie Frondoza.

The group toured Brazil’s medical, judicial, and academic institutions as part of their month-long educational exposure.

Sinsuat, in an emailed statement, said they were impressed with the agricultural technology being utilized by peasant sectors in Brazil and the vast agricultural plantations in its countryside.

He said Brazil’s use of the jury system only for cases involving death, and the fully automated litigation of labor cases were too unique and efficient.

Brazil is the largest country in the South American-Latin American region both by geographical area and population.

Sinsuat said equally fascinating was their experience in meeting Brazilian nationals in the cities of Goiania, Jatai, Caldas Novas, Araxa, Uberlandia, Patrocinio and Araguari.

He said Brazilians are as hospitable as Filipinos and are very accommodating of their visitors.
