10 Brazilian companies many of which are first time to market, gathered under the Brazilian pavilion are displaying mainly building materials at Project Lebanon 2012. The showcased materials range from small finishing goods to materials for civil construction, ceramic tiles, ceramic claddings, roof tiles and wall claddings, paints, sanitary fixtures and accessories and more.
“This is our second consecutive participation in Project Lebanon and the Brazilian pavilion surface area has increased by 50%,” said Mr. Rodolfo Ribeiro, the Trade Commissioner at the Brazilian Embassy in Lebanon to ifpinfo. “We at the Brazilian Embassy, in collaboration with our Foreign Ministry and the Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce encourage and support Brazilian companies to take part in various exhibitions in the region. We particularly encourage them to participate in Project Lebanon because it is one of the most successful shows in terms of visitor turnout and return on investment. We believe that Lebanon is a promising market and could be the way to many other countries of this region due to the strong presence of its companies in the Arab world and North of Africa,” added Ribeiro.
“Today is early to tell, but on the second day of the exhibition I can admit that we are satisfied with the number of visitors and the business enquiries made by many of them. So far, so good,” said Ribeiro.
