29 May 2014

Brazil’s National Transport Confederation has decided to partner the Brazil-China Business Council (CEBC), an organisation intended to drive and improve two-way relations between the countries, the CNT’s director for International Relations, Harley Andrade said.

The CEBC represents the interests of its members in relation to Brazilian and Chinese governments and institutions and seeks to influence public policy to benefit trade and carries out and provides studies and information that brings the two countries closer together.

The director of International Relations for CNT noted that since the beginning of April the Advanced Office of the National Transport Confederation had been operating in Beijing with a view to building bridges between Brazilian and Chinese businesspeople, improve information exchange and attracting investments for building infrastructure in Brazil.

The CEBC was founded in 2004 when trade between the two nations totalled US$9.2 billion. It currently has 65 members – 38 Brazilian companies and institutions and 27 from China. (macauhub/BR/CN)
