The Financial Services Committee of the Brazilian Chamber of Commerce in London has the pleasure to invite you to its first event covering the Infrastructure sector in Brazil, outlining the main characteristics and opportunities in the sector at present.
The Brazilian GDP has been growing at a steady pace despite the global economic crisis, putting pressure on the country’s current infrastructure. Over R$200billion investments are needed in the sector until 2013, also to ensure that Brazil can deliver the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Where are the current opportunities for private investors? Government regulation and bank financing place a crucial role in the development of infrastructure projects worldwide. What are the objectives of the newly elected Brazilian Government for the sector, what role does it aim to play? What has been the recent experience and current appetite of the BNDES and Commercial Banks to finance projects in Brazil? What has been the experience of private investors so far?
In order to answer these and other questions, and meet and mingle with sector specialists, please join us on:
