The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) works to promote Brazilian products and services abroad and to attract foreign investments to strategic sectors of the Brazilian economy.
To achieve its goals Apex-Brasil executes a range of trade promotion activities aimed at promoting exports and adding value to Brazilian products and services abroad. These initiatives include prospective and trade missions, business talks, support for Brazilian companies to take part in major international fairs and visits by foreign buyers and tastemakers aimed at familiarizing them with Brazil’s production structure, among other business platforms which are also geared towards strengthening the Brazil brand.
The Agency also works in coordination with public and private actors to attract direct foreign investments (DFI) to Brazil, focusing on sectors that are strategic to developing the competitiveness of Brazilian companies and of Brazil as a country.
Within the Agency, efforts are made to provide employees a workplace that is equal and fair. This attitude was recognized by the Pro Gender and Race Equality Seal (Selo Pró-Equidade de Gênero e Raça) from the Secretariat to the President on Women’s Policies, which was received in 2015.
