THE CITY OF RIO DE JANEIRO History The city was mentioned officially for the first time when the second Portuguese exploratory expedition, commanded by Gaspar Lemos, arrived in January 1502, at the bay, the navigator assumed, understandably, to be the mouth of a river, thus giving the name to the region of Rio de Janeiro. But it was only in 1530 that the Portuguese crown sent an expedition to colonize the area, rather than continue using it just as a stop for overseas adventures. The French, on the other hand, had been in Rio de Janeiro and surrounding areas since the beginning of the century and were willing to fight for dominance in the region. In 1560, after a series of skirmishes, the Portuguese expelled the French. The beginning of the city as such was in Morro of São Januário, later known as Morro do Castelo, and then the Praça Quinze, vital center of Rio to this day. Rio de Janeiro developed thanks to its vocation as a natural harbor. At the same time that gold was discovered in the state of Minas Gerais, in the late XVII century, the Governor of Brazil was made Viceroy. Salvador was the capital of the colony, but the growing importance of the port of Rio secured the transfer of the seat of power to the south, to the city that would become, and still is, the intellectual and cultural center of the country. In 1808, the Portuguese royal family came to Rio de Janeiro, as a refuge from the threat of Napoleon’s invasion. In this period the city developed considerably, with the establishment of new activities and construction of large buildings. When the royal family returned to Portugal and after the independence of Brazil in 1822, the gold mines had been depleted and had given way to a different source of wealth: coffee. The city continued to grow through the XIX century, initially northward, to São Cristóvão and Tijuca, and then towards the South Zone, through Glória, Flamengo and Botafogo. However, in 1889, the abolition of slavery and poor harvests interrupted progress. This period of social and political unrest led to the Proclamation of the Republic. Despite this, Rio, then called the Federal District, remained the political center and capital of the country. The beginning of the XX century saw the creation of wide streets and imposing buildings, mostly in the French fin-de-siècle style. Rio de Janeiro maintained its position until the inauguration of Brasília as capital of the republic in 1960. As the Capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro, the city remains the social and cultural center of the country. (Source: Riotur).

MEDICAL & ODONTOLOGICAL CARE All expatriates coming to Brazil, as well as their dependents, will only have access to medical and odontological care benefits once they are in accordance with the Brazilian Social Security (CPF). GSK will provide support for emergency care while the employee is awaiting the finalization of the process to obtain the CPF. The expatriate should contact the Department of Occupational Health (DSO) directly and request a Letter of Authorization for Emergency Care. This letter authorizes the care in official emergency situations at Hospital Barra D'or exclusively. The hospital is located in Barra da Tijuca, the address is Avenida Ayrton Senna, 2541. For questions about the process please contact HR (RH Atende). LIFE INSURANCE To GSKâ€™s expatriate employees, Life Insurance is only offered after their effective inclusion in the Brazilian payroll. While this process is underway the employee remains covered by this benefit by being connected to the payroll of their country of origin. REAL ESTATE RENTAL Upon arriving in Brazil, GSK provides aid for temporary housing during the period of approximately 30 days in which the employee will be staying in a hotel or flat. This period should be used to search for an apartment in which the expatriate will reside during his or her stay in the country. During this period the employee will have the assistance of a specialized company that will give him or her all the necessary support in this search, as in other processes to rent the property. When finding an apartment that meets your needs, the process for formalizing the rent with the preparation and signing of the lease starts. Such a contract should be assessed by the Company's Legal Sector and, once changes are made - if necessary, the sector authorizes the start of the internal approval process. In Brazil most of the lease occurs through the presence of a guarantor who assumes the debts incurred by the lessee during the term of the contract. GSK is willing to appear as guarantor in the lease of its expatriate staff by prior analysis. 25
