APSCo trade delegation arrives in Brazil

APSCo trade delegation arrives in Brazil

November 7-11 2011

16 senior recruitment executives attending

16 senior recruitment executives will arrive in Brazil today (07/11/11) for a five-day trade delegation organised by the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo).

This will be the third APSCo-led trade delegation, following on from the trip to Singapore earlier this year, and the 2008 delegation to Abu Dhabi and Qatar.

The purpose of the trade delegation is to assist APSCo members identify opportunities for expansion in Brazil, the UK’s most important trading partner in Latin America, and one of the fastest growing major economies in the world.

The itinerary for the five-day event will include:
Extensive programme of business briefings in both Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro

A business networking reception at the Deputy Consul General’s residence in Sao Paulo

Presentations by leading economists, business advisers and lawyers on conducting business in Brazil

Tour of the business districts

The five-day delegation has been organised by APSCo in association with UK Trade and Investment, the Government body which assists UK businesses with overseas expansion.

Ann Swain, Chief Executive of APSCo, comments: “The UK already is one of Brazil’s largest foreign investors and many UK businesses have well-established operation in the country, so this trip will be the perfect opportunity to capitalise on that relationship.”

“Many of the recruiters who attended our last trade delegation to Singapore won new business and opened offices directly as a result of the visit. With Brazil hosting the World Cup in 2014, and the Olympics in 2016, there has been a huge and on-going investment in the infrastructure of the country, which is creating an increased demand for skills.”

“Our aim is to give UK recruiters, who might otherwise find the barrier to entry too great, access to this high growth market. We will be visiting both Sao Paulo, which is Brazil’s major financial hub, and Rio de Janeiro, which is the centre of Brazil’s oil and gas industry.”
