During 2018, the Electro-Electronic Brasil Program, the result of the agreement between the Brazilian Electro-Electronic Industry Association (Abinee) and the Brazilian Agency for the Promotion of Exports and Investments (Apex-Brasil), carried out three business missions in the electro-electronic sector. The destinations were Colombia, Peru and Mexico. The initiatives counted on participation in business roundtables, seminars and technical visits.
With US$ 1.8 million of businesses already closed and US$ 11.5 million estimated for the next months, companies of the electro-electronic sector participated in the Commercial Mission to Colombia, in the period of August 27-30.
During the round of business, there were 53 buyers, distributors, representatives, contractors and project engineers from various areas: industrial automation; industrial equipment; generation, transmission and distribution (GTD); electro-electronic components, electrical installation materials, telecommunications, industrial automation, computer and electronic security.
The mission included a seminar for Brazilian companies and presentations with strategic and market information by the Brazilian Embassy in Bogotá, by Apex América do Sul, Apex-Brasil, CIDET (Corporación Centro de Innovación y Desarrollo Tecnológico del Electric Sector) and Abinee.
The companies also participated in meetings and technical visits with potential buyers, in addition to the meeting with the Colombian Chamber of Energy (CCEnergía) and an event promoted by the Bogotá-Region Electric Energy Cluster.
Another Trade Mission for Columbia is scheduled for the second half of 2019, another Trade Mission for Colombia and participation in FISE (Feria Internacional del Sector Eléctrico).
The mission to Peru generated business of US$ 460 thousand. For the coming months, the estimate of the 20 participating companies is that the contacts yield operations of US$ 10.4 million. On that occasion, two hundred meetings were held with buyers.
The main areas of interest were industrial automation; industrial equipment; generation, transmission and distribution (GTD); electro-electronic components, electrical installation materials, telecommunications, industrial automation, computer and electronic security. Another Trade Mission is planned for Peru in the second half of 2019.
Fourteen companies in the electro-eletronic sector integrated the Mission to Mexico, in the period of November 26-30. The objective was to seek a commercial approach by presenting solutions in areas such as information technology and communications (TICs), industrial automation, generation, transmission and distribution of electric powere (GTD).
