The Cabinet of Brazil (Portuguese: Gabinete Ministerial do Brasil) is composed of the Ministers of State and senior advisors of the executive branch of the federal government of Brazil. Cabinet officers are appointed and dismissed by the President. There are currently twenty-two Ministries and five other Ministry-level offices: the Chief of Staff, Secretary of Government, General-Secreterary for the Presidency, Institutional Security Cabinet, and Central Bank).


Ministers assist the President in the exercise of executive power. Each minister is responsible for the general administration of a government portfolio, and heads the corresponding government ministry. Ministers prepare standards, monitor and evaluate federal programs, and formulate and implement policies for the sectors they represent. They are also responsible for establishing strategies, policies and priorities in the application of public resources. Generally, the minister considered to be most high-ranking is the Chief of Staff, while other high-profile ministers include Finance, Justice and Public Security, Foreign Affairs and Defense.
