A delegation that includes 30 Brazilian companies will take part in the 5th Brazilian Trade Mission to the UAE, which will run from February 20 to 21 at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel – Dubai.
Trade activities between the two countries continue to expand, with Brazilian exports to the UAE increasing by 13.3 per cent from over $2.16 billion in 2011 to more than $2.45 billion in 2012, according to figures from the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
A hosted buyer’s programme for interested importers and trading companies from the Middle East is one of the highlights of the Trade Mission, which is organized by Apex-Brasil and the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade under the patronage of the Brazilian Ambassador to the UAE.
A business meeting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, will also be organized on February 18 as part of the Trade Mission.
The event on February 20 is strictly for UAE companies, while the event on the 21st is for regional hosted buyers from Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Bahrain, Oman, Jordan and Iraq.
Apex-Brasil is also organising seminars on “Venture Capital & Private Equity” at the Jumeirah Tower Hotels in Dubai and at the Intercontinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The seminars are supported by the Brazilian Ministries of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade and of External Relations, National Confederation of Industry and Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.
Mauricio Borges, president of Apex-Brasil, said: “The enthusiastic response that we have received from the UAE and Brazilian companies for the Trade Mission manifests the lucrative prospects that have now emerged in light of the growing trade activities between the two countries.” – TradeArabia News Service
