Utah Sends Trade Mission to Brazil

Press Release

September 23, 2013

Salt Lake City — A Utah trade mission to Brazil, led by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), departed Saturday Sept. 21st and is bound for the cities of Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Londrina and Rio de Janeiro. While visiting these cities, the Utah delegation will meet with Brazilian business leaders, government and education officials to strengthen Utah’s trade with Brazil. The trade mission to Brazil is comprised of Utah business, education, government leaders.

Brazil is one of the strongest countries in South America, and is continuing to grow in the global market. From 2005 to 2012 annual Utah exports to Brazil have grown over 200 percent. The trade mission to Brazil is focused on building key business and government relationships in order to make noticeable increases in Utah exports to Brazil and foreign direct investment from Brazil.

“Utah has the right connections and the right motivation to create a remarkable relationship with Brazil,” said Harvey Scott, director of International Trade and Diplomacy Office. “A country as large as Brazil can present many opportunities and challenges to companies who wish to do business there.”

Attendees of the trade mission will include representatives from 20 organizations, such as Wells Fargo Bank, Kennecott-Rio Tinto, Albion Laboratories, Kaddas Enterprises and Lithium Storage. Also attending the trade mission are representatives from the World Trade Center Utah and GOED.
