Event description

Description

Many small and medium-sized exporters are looking at Brazil as a possible new export market. They know that Brazil is the largest country in South America and the eighth largest economy of the world. But it is no secret that Brazil is still recovering from an economic recession and may present challenges for Ohio exporters.

Brazil is a very diverse country and market. Find out if your product, service or technology is in demand in Brazil. By attending this program, you will get to meet the staff of the Ohio Brazil office and learn about Brazil.

You will hear:
  • Brazil at a Glance
  • An Industrial and Agricultural Giant
  • The Three Motors of the Economy: the middle class, the abundant natural resources and the investments in infrastructure
  • Advantages and Challenges
  • US and Brazil Trade
Despite taxes and high import duties, the US has done very well in Brazil. Brazil is a very important trade market for the United States. It is among the top 10 markets for US goods and services, as well as trade surplus with Brazil, proving that there are real opportunities. In addition, there is an appetite for US goods and services in Brazil. No matter the challenge, Brazil remains too big an opportunity to miss.
The speaker is Ms. Claudia Maria Tomaselli, one of the founders and co-directors of Tomaselli, and Zulatto Consultoria Ltda in Brazil. TVZ Int'l was established in 2004, and is representing the State of Ohio in Brazil. Their expertise is in new business development and foreign partner matchmaking.
