North East firms go nuts for Brazil

Date 5 Nov 2007

North East firms are set to go "nuts" for Brazil as they explore the many opportunities to do business in the country.

As part of an ongoing programme of market visits, UK Trade & Investment will be organising a trip to the South American country in February to enable companies to find out more about the market and meet potential customers.

Jeff Sanders, one of UK Trade & Investment's International Trade Advisers, said: "Brazil is the UK's most important trading partner in Latin America, with UK exports of goods and services valued at around £1.2 billion.

"Brazil represents one of today's most exciting opportunities and North East firms have every chance of competing in this market. But trading successfully in Brazil is all about relationships - face to face meetings with customers is vital and our market visit offers the ideal chance for companies to introduce themselves to potential clients."

The Brazil Market Visit, 24 February - 3 March 2008, will enable delegates to explore the market with like-minded businesses and receive the full support of an International Trade Adviser prior to, during and after the visit.

A briefing session before departure will offer a comprehensive understanding of the country and UK Trade & Investment's commercial staff in Brazil can undertake specific research to identify contacts appropriate for each individual business.

For more information or to book a place contact the North East International Trade Hotline on 0845 05 05 054 or email enquiries.
