Rodney Bay, Gros Islet, Saint Lucia, September 6, 2016 :— The Embassy of Brazil in Saint Lucia – and local entrepreneurs — are preparing to host a major investment mission with numerous opportunities for business that will also strengthen the good ties between the giant South American nation and its tiny Caribbean neighbor.
According to Brazil’s Ambassador to Saint Lucia, Sergio Couri, the mission will comprise investors and parliamentarians bent on doing business with Saint Lucian entrepreneurs and other business persons, in a wide range of sectors.
The Brazilian Business Mission is scheduled to be here for November 11-17, 2016 and it will comprise 15 members anxious to grab new and open opportunities to invest in Saint Lucia.
The trip is being organized by a Brazil-based group called Nomad Development, which also has teams in place in both capitals.
The wide range of business opportunities that will come with the Brazilian Mission will include prospects for investment partnerships in: Construction and Infrastructural Development, Tourism and Hotel Development, Agriculture and Agro Industries, Farming and Food Production, Nutrition, Medicine, Sports, Physical Fitness, Health and Beauty, Cultural Development, Training and Investment Consultancies, Language Development, Alternative Energy, Water and Electricity.
According to Ambassador Couri, “This Brazilian Business Mission will offer this wide range of opportunities to the Government and People of Saint Lucia, through the business community.”
He said during their week here, the visiting investors “will meet with members of the local business community and their organizations, to discuss how to merge their synergies to create new investments that both countries and people will be proud of.”
The Ambassador says planning is well under way in Saint Lucia and Brazil for the mission’s arrival.
“But,” he added, “ahead of their arrival, interested Saint Lucian business persons and entities will be given the opportunity to indicate their interest and arrange interviews.”
Ambassador Couri said the Brazilian Mission “is also interested in doing business with businesses in other member-states of the OECS that may also be present in Saint Lucia.”
He said information on participation “will be made available soon, so that interested persons and entities can know how to get involved in this new opportunity for expansion of business ties between Brazil and Saint Lucia.”
