“Açu Port offers excellent business opportunities to Indian companies. In addition to the area available for the installation of industrial plants, we are developing an Export Processing Zone (EPZ) at the port, enabling installation of companies focused mainly on exports to the Americas,” said Açu Port Commercial Director Fernando Schuffner.
Along with the BRICS Trade Fair, participating companies will work on specific agendas. The Brazilian delegation is formed by 20 companies and led by the India-Brazil Chamber of Commerce (CCIAIB). The mission was organized by the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (APEX) and the National Confederation of Industry (CNI).
“Our expectation is to return with closed deals and increase the number of successful cases in India-Brazil relations. We are focused on attracting new investments to the country. The delegation is formed by multiple industries, including sports, logistics, agriculture and livestock, IT, security, technology, finance, aerospace, food and beverages. Certainly we will get good results,” said Leonardo Ananda, head of the Chamber.
The fair is being held before the 8th BRICS Summit and its theme is “Building BRICS – Innovation for Collaboration”. It will showcase some of the best technologies available in BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), enabling participants to share experiences and sign partnerships.
