The German-Brazilian Business Fair takes place in Rio de Janeiro from 18 to 20 September 2011. The conference is organised annually by the BDI and its Brazilian counterpart, the CNI, and is the most important bilateral business meeting, which this year takes place for the twenty-ninth time. This year’s conference will look at opportunities for closer cooperation with German business. The focus will be on investment projects in the fields of infrastructure, energy and environmental technology – in particular in view of world sports events such as the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games – and the health sector.
