UKTI North East: Exporting to Brazil. What's in it for Your Business?


Designated one of UKTI's High Growth Markets Brazil is simply too big a market to ignore. It is the fifth-largest country in the world with a population of around 190 million people. It has one of the world's most rapidly developing economies and a GDP per head greater than either India or China.

With a broad and sophisticated industrial base, if a product or service is generally competitive in world markets it is also likely to sell well in Brazil. Consumers and businesses have developed high standards both for quality and value for money.

Come along to a free Breakfast Briefing brought to you by UK Trade and Investment and hear, first hand, the reasons why you should consider exporting your product or service to Brazil.

With opportunities across the engineering, science & technology, educational, environmental and energy sectors do not miss out on this opportunity to learn more about how to grow your business in Brazil and take part in the next UKTI North East Trade Mission to Brazil early in 2016.

Hear from Renato Cordeiro who heads the UKTI Oil and Gas team for Brazil at the British Consul General in Rio. Renato specialises in the Oil and Gas sector, but also has considerable experience in the development of international business in Brazil.

Mike Storey, Director of Innovision Global Ltd will also discuss how attending a UKTI Market Visit has helped his business develop in Brazil and is currently fitting their products at Universities, Football Stadiums and perhaps even the Olympic venues in Rio.

The Breakfast Briefing will include:
•A chance to network over tea/ coffee and a bacon butty with other businesses
•An overview of the opportunities in Brazil from Renato Cordeiro, Head of UKTI Oil and Gas Team in Brazil.
•A glimpse into the past success of Innovision Global Ltd from Director, Mike Storey.
•A briefing on the upcoming UKTI Trade Mission to Brazil in early 2016 from Jeff Sanders, International Trade Adviser
•An opportunity to meet with Renato Cordeiro and discuss the opportunities for your business in Brazil.
