More about event

Brazil has been hit hard by the corona-crisis. What does this mean for Dutch entrepreneurs active here? The Economic Network in Brazil will update you on the developments in a series of 7 webinars.

Brazil is the largest economy in Latin America with an internal market of 210 million inhabitants. The country has been hit hard economically by the crisis, but the differences are large by region and sector. With aid programs, the Brazilian government supports companies and individuals who are at risk.

Economic consequences after corona
In Brazil, the corona pandemic will reach a peak later than in Europe. The growth in the number of infections in major cities is increasing. The governors of almost all federal states have taken measures to prevent the virus from spreading. In the southeastern and southern regions, the relaxation of the measures is starting to take place in phases. The economy is starting up again in some federal states. In the agricultural sector, production and exports have continued. Privatizations are now being resumed at federal level. The goods flows by sea and by air, also directly from the Netherlands, are uninterrupted and gradually increasing in volume again.

Series of webinars from the Economic Network 
In order to provide insights on the current situation and the possibilities that arise with this crisis, the Economic Network in Brazil organizes a series of 7 webinars. The network includes the Embassy in Brasília, Consulates General in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo and NBSOs in Belo Horizonte and Porto Alegre. Specialists from these organizations and from the Dutch-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce (Dutcham) share their knowledge with external guest speakers during these webinars.
These webinars are focused on Dutch entrepreneurs with an interest in doing business with Brazil.
