Port of Açu and Firjan sponsor Entrepreneurial Journey in Rio de Janeiro State

Event gathers 80 local businesspeople for 2 days of visits to the Port Complex

A group of 80 entrepreneurs who are members of the North and Northwest divisions of the Rio de Janeiro State industrial association Firjan scheduled a visit to check out the current infrastructure of the Port of Açu and its potential for business in the future. Today, the enterprise welcomed some of the group. Entrepreneurs from Campos and Macaé were chaperoned by the port’s Institutional Relations and Sales teams. Tomorrow, the port will welcome entrepreneurs from Itaperuna, São Fidélis and other representatives from the Northwestern part of the State.

Under the program defined for the Entrepreneurial Journey of North/Northwest Rio de Janeiro State, visitors toured the Iron Ore, Oil (T-OIL) and Multicargo (T-MULT) terminals, and the area where Port of Açu customers built their facilities. The group also had the opportunity to talk with the enterprise’s officials, who presented the Port Complex’s dynamics, prospects, opportunities and potential.

It is one option we have to present the port’s demands and potential business deals, while showing the progress made at the Port Complex,” he said.

Fernando Aguiar, Chairman of the FIRJAN/CIRJ North office, also emphasized the importance of such exchanges: “Since the port was set up, we have been committed to the visitation agenda because it enables local leaders and businesspeople to learn more and catch up with the Port Complex’s workings. This is a time for integration, and for local businesses to become aware of Açu’s opportunities and challenges,” he added.
