RODNEY BAY, St Lucia — The Embassy of Brazil in Saint Lucia is preparing to host a major investment mission with numerous opportunities for business that will also strengthen ties between the giant South American nation and its tiny Caribbean neighbor.
According to Ambassador 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 to Saint Lucia is scheduled for Nov. 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.
The wide range of business opportunities that will come with the 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 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 there, 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 said 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.”
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 also 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.”
