Brazil­ian Busi­ness Mis­sion Com­ing in Novem­ber

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Em­bassy of Brazil in Saint Lu­cia is pre­par­ing to host a ma­jor in­vest­ment mis­sion with nu­mer­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties for busi­ness that will also strongly strengthen ties be­tween the gi­ant South Amer­i­can na­tion and its tiny Caribbean neigh­bour.

Ac­cord­ing to Am­bas­sador Ser­gio Couri, the mis­sion will com­prise in­vestors and par­lia­men­tar­i­ans bent on do­ing busi­ness with Saint Lu­cian en­trepreneurs and other busi­ness per­sons, in a wide range of sec­tors.

The Brazil­ian Busi­ness Mis­sion to Saint Lu­cia is sched­uled for Novem­ber 11-17, 2016 with 15 rep­re­sen­ta­tives ready to in­vest in Saint Lu­cia.

The trip is be­ing or­gan­ised by a Brazil-based group called No­mad De­vel­op­ment.

The wide range of busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties that will come with the mis­sion will in­clude prospects for in­vest­ment part­ner­ships in: Con­struc­tion and In­fras­truc­tural De­vel­op­ment, Tourism and Ho­tel De­vel­op­ment, Agri­cul­ture and Agro In­dus­tries, Farm­ing and Food Pro­duc­tion, Nu­tri­tion, Medicine, Sports, Phys­i­cal Fit­ness, Health and Beauty, Cul­tural De­vel­op­ment, Train­ing and In­vest­ment Con­sul­tan­cies, Lan­guage De­vel­op­ment, Al­ter­na­tive En­ergy, Wa­ter and Elec­tric­ity.

Ac­cord­ing to Am­bas­sador Couri, “This Brazil­ian Busi­ness Mis­sion will of­fer this wide range of op­por­tu­ni­ties to the Govern­ment and peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia, through the busi­ness com­mu­nity.”

He said dur­ing their week here, the vis­it­ing in­vestors “will meet with mem­bers of the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity and their or­gan­i­sa­tions, to dis­cuss how to merge their syn­er­gies to cre­ate new in­vest­ments that both coun­tries and peo­ple will be proud of”.

The Am­bas­sador says plan­ning is well un­der way in Saint Lu­cia and Brazil for the mis­sion’s ar­rival.

“But,” he added, “ahead of their ar­rival, in­ter­ested Saint Lu­cian busi­ness per­sons and en­ti­ties will be given the op­por­tu­nity to in­di­cate their in­ter­est and ar­range in­ter­views.”

Am­bas­sador Couri said, "The Brazil­ian Mis­sion is also in­ter­ested in do­ing busi­ness with busi­nesses in other mem­ber-states of the OECS that may also be present in Saint Lu­cia."

He also said in­for­ma­tion on par­tic­i­pa­tion will be made avail­able soon, so that in­ter­ested per­sons and en­ti­ties can know how to get in­volved in this new op­por­tu­nity for ex­pan­sion of busi­ness ties be­tween Brazil and Saint Lu­cia.
