Brazil increases Big 5 participation

Eight Brazilian companies will be showcasing products at The Big 5 show at the Dubai World Trade Centre as the country seeks to further establish links with Arab states.

In the GCC region, Brazil’s export value has so far reached $25.61m. The UAE accounted for 57.4% of the total transactions followed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Michel Alaby, CEO of Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, said: “During last year’s Dubai event, six Brazilian companies joined thousands of exhibitors from all over the world.

“It was beneficial and fruitful experience as they were able to attain their strategic objectives successfully. This year, more organizations are participating in hopes of exceeding the 2013 accomplishments.

“The Big 5 affords them an ideal platform to interact with potential investors and enter the thriving regional market.”
