PIB Brazil for Sustainable and Innovative Airport Development (SIAD) 2023-2025
The PIB (Partnership International Business) is a collaborative market development program. Both the government and the private sector are organizing concrete actions to create and support market opportunities for the members. For this PIB the NAG, its members, RVO and the Dutch Embassy in Brazil have defined a support program to develop the market chances for the Airport Development members.
Why the Brazilian airport market?
During the airport innovation mission in April 2022 it became apparent that the Airport Development market in Brazil is highly attractive for Dutch companies. This innovation mission was initiated by the positive results of the market survey that was recently done by the Dutch embassy in Brasilia. In particular the privatization and concessions is driving huge opportunities for modernization of the airports. Also the absence of other transport means in this vast country makes this a sound case for setting up this joint effort in this PIB. Developing a market collectively is one of the strengths of the NAG. A joint PIB approach will increase the chances by bringing together complementary capabilities, sharing network and sharing intelligence. The local embassy with local experienced support staff will contribute to the program by organizing activities and opening the right doors.
Ansart, Deerns, NACO, SACO Airport Equipment, To70, Unified International, Vanderlande, RVO and the NAG have signed a covenant for a two year program to develop the market for sustainable airport development, for consultancy, processes and systems. The overall objective is to improve the general position of the Netherlands as an innovative, reliable partner in facing the sustainability challenges in airport development and infrastructure. With the unique Dutch integrated approach, innovative companies and triple helix collaboration, the Dutch airport development and infrastructure sector will be positioned as a prime partner in the coming challenges and transition. After two years we expect to have captured a significant part of the market that matches the capabilities of the cluster partners. Thereby creating a solid starting position to strengthen the market position in de following decade for this multi-billion$ market.
The main actions consist of branding and promotion of the Dutch capabilities and connecting the partners to the appropriate parties on the right level. Therefore we will organize workshops, seminars, outgoing and incoming missions. A liaison will be established to support the partners with market intelligence and business development Economic diplomacy will help to maintain a constructive relationship and a sound understanding of the processes and risks.
The PIB is open for new partners who are active in the market of sustainable airport development and share the believe of developing the market collectively. Please contact the NAG, the coordinator of this PIB, if you are interested to join this ambitious program.
