In spite of recent political turmoil and economic stagnation, Brazil, the largest economy in Latin America, continues to create wealth for foreign investors due to an unprecedented rise in middle-class and a historical low currency (Real, R$) in comparison to US dollar.
Aiming to foster business in the two nations, a Brazilian delegation led by the American Chamber of Commerce for Brazil (Amcham Brazil), made the first stop of its “How To Do Business And Invest In Brazil” roadshow on November 3rd, at the World Trade Center Atlanta. The Metro Atlanta Chamber, the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of the Southeast (BACC-SE) and the Trade and Investment Bureau of the Consulate General of Brazil provided support for the event.
“Brazil is going through a political crisis, not an economic one, and the current challenges should not overshadow the opportunities in the country,” remarked Camila Moura, Amcham Brazil products and services director.
Panelists from the delegation gave an overview of the 3rd edition of the Amcham “How to” series, which was released at the event and given to attendees-- topics range from investor liability in the country to the ascending markets of Healthcare and IT. A representative from NCR shared the company’s success story in the Brazilian market.
The delegation, which partnered with Amcham Brazil to create the roadshow and publications, was comprised of representatives from law firms, Granadeiro Guimarães, Nascimento & Mourão, Pinhão e Koiffman, and a representative from the Campinas City Hall. The delegation also visited Georgia Tech University to learn about its industry innovation programs.
