The Chamber of Commerce Brazil-Canada will hold the 1st Brazil-Canada Economic Forum, aimed at stimulating new business opportunities between the two countries in the post-pandemic period. The event is part of the Chamber’s 50th anniversary celebration program, which also includes Canada Day (late June and early July), the Brazil-Canada Summit (September) and a cocktail to celebrate the Golden Jubilee, when a book on the evolution of bilateral relations over the last five decades will be launched (September).                

The Forum will bring together business and government leaders to outline trends and perspectives for the economy of both countries, as well as discuss essential topics for opening new businesses, such as the Mercosur-Canada Free Trade Agreement, logistical bottlenecks, and the main regulatory challenges faced by companies.

According to Carlos Rifan, the Chamber’s Business Development Coordinator, the initiative seeks to stimulate cooperation and new business opportunities, in addition to collaborating with the economic development between the two countries. The event will also be an opportunity to discuss themes such as international trade, investments, and innovation between the two countries.

“We believe that the debate on political and economic perspectives is fundamental for the elaboration of companies’ strategies. This is something that will add to the decision-making process, as well as contribute to companies establishing strategic partnerships”, he evaluates.                                                             

“There is nothing better than bringing content that favors the development of our members. This is a good way to celebrate ‘our jubilee and our history'”, adds Rifan.

The expectation of the event is to provide valuable business opportunities and networking for Brazilian and Canadian companies. The hybrid event will take place at the Brazil-Canada CCBC Auditorium, in São Paulo, on June 15th, from 1:30pm to 6pm.
