Brazil: Airports Fact-Finding Mission
Brazil is the largest economy in Latin America and its continental size makes aviation essential to bring regions together, connecting from the smallest local communities up to its cosmopolitan State capitals. This is the reason why the country has by far the largest air transport market of the continent. Being an emerging economy, it acknowledges that airport development is instrumental to support the country’s ambitions to expand tourism and global trade.
The RVO and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Brasilia started a pre-private public partnership for Sustainable Airport Development in Brazil. This programme aims to bring together a group of companies who will engage with the Brazilian market for a 3-year period with the goal of positioning themselves in this growing market. In preparation of this engagement, a study of the airport sector in Brazil was done by Marcelo Cantor. The report can be read here.
The NAG will participate in the mission and will be present in Brazil. You can register for the mission by signing up through the website of the Dutch Enterprise Agency here.
