Reaching out to distant neighbors
Atlanta has seen increased economic growth, not to mention several new job opportunities. Now it has its eyes set to distant neighbors in Brazil for even more possibilities.
In an effort to strengthen global business, the Office of International Affairs will host leaders from Brazilian companies on Aug. 22. The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Brazilian Consulate General Office.
“I am pleased to welcome the Brazilian Business Delegation to Atlanta,” Mayor Kasim Reed said in a statement. “This trade delegation will further Atlanta’s global competitiveness in the information and technology sector.”
During the event, local businesses will have the opportunity to meet with information and technology companies in Brazil, companies include Totvs, Clip, Execplan, and HDI Group.
“The Office of International Affairs is delighted to partner with the Brazilian Consulate General on this forum,” Claire Angelle, director of International Affairs, said in a statement. “Atlanta is a leading technology hub and the delegation will have an opportunity to network with local businesses in an effort to spur investment and expansion opportunities.”
Atlanta is home to over 6,000 Brazilians, with over 40 Brazilian companies employing 5,000 Atlanta residents.
