Brazilian exporters explore opportunities in Lebanon
, June 5, 2013
A group of Brazilian exporters, led by the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce (ABCC), are taking part in a construction trade exhibition that started yesterday in Beirut.
Project Lebanon 2013, the 18th edition of the international construction trade exhibition for Lebanon and the Middle East, will run until June 7.
The Brazilian companies are showcasing their products and services at ABCC’s 105 sq m exhibition stand, said a statement.
Brazilian construction exports to Lebanon consist of nails, tacks, drawing pins and similar articles, glazed and unglazed ceramic flags and paving, hearth tiles, as well as other works of plastics, appliances for pipes, boiler shells, tanks and vats.
ABCC, in partnership with the Brazilian Embassy in Beirut, will visit a construction site, a finished building and a home center for construction products, to enable Brazilian businessmen to better understand the Lebanese construction sector, it added.
“Lebanon has been a very important growth market for Brazil’s construction exports. During the past two editions of Project Lebanon, which the ABCC has participated in, we have observed a growing interest in Brazilian products and services among local developers and contractors in Lebanon," said Dr Michel Alaby, general secretary and CEO.
"This strongly demonstrates the huge potential to further grow Brazil’s construction exports, particularly in light of the ongoing construction boom sweeping Lebanon. In this regard, the ABCC will leverage its influence and strategic alliances to help open more opportunities for Brazilian suppliers to expand their activities in the local construction market,” he added. - TradeArabia News Service
