Oil and Gas Trade Mission BRAZIL 2017


The Brazil Texas Chamber of Commerce (BRATECC), in partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service, invites you to participate in a Trade Mission to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Trade Mission will focus on exploring opportunities for U.S. companies in Brazil’s energy sector and will provide participants unparalleled networking opportunities with industry leaders.

Brazil is Latin America’s largest country and the eighth largest economy in the world. The U.S. is one of the top exporters to Brazil, accounting for over 15% of Brazil’s total imported goods and services.  Recent oil and gas regulatory changes are expected to generate new opportunities for international goods and services suppliers.

American companies will have exposure to key stakeholders and decision makers in the public and private sectors who will provide market intelligence and guidance on how to maximize new opportunities. 

Date/Time: October 22 - 27, 2017
