Brazil-Mozambique Chamber of Commerce to have a stand at the 5th Portuguese Language Business Meeting

21 August 2009

Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 21 Aug – The Brazil-Mozambique Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agri-Livestock (CCIABM) will have a stand at the 5th Portuguese-Language Business Meeting and will help those that plan to find out more about and do business in Mozambique, the chamber’s director said.

Speaking to Portugal Digital and África 21 Digital, Mário Tevernard said he expected a large delegation from Mozambique to take part in the meeting, including members of the government and many businesspeople.

The director of the CCIABM said that the Portuguese-Language Business Meeting was promising, particularly because language is a factor that brings cultures together and brings nations closer to one another.

Another positive aspect, Tavernard said, is that currently greater attention was being paid by Brazil to the other Portuguese-speaking countries, particularly those in Africa.

Tavernard noted some of the main projects linked to mining and infrastructures carried out by Brazilian companies, such as Vale do Rio Doce and Camargo Corrêa, respectively.

“We thus believe that these large projects could lead to others, as well as contributing to increased trade between the two countries,” he said.

The 5th Portuguese-Language Business Meeting in Fortaleza is promoted by the Council of Portuguese Chambers of Commerce in Brazil – made up of the 11 Portuguese-Brazilian Chambers in the country – including the other promoter, the Brazil-Portugal Chamber in Ceará – Commerce, Industry and Tourism and the Government of the State of Ceará and also has the support of the Business Council of the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP).

The meeting will be held between 28 and 29 September 2009, at the Ceará Convention Centre, in north-eastern Brazil. (macauhub)
