Army Will Protect Arab Summiteers in Brazil

In the second week of May, the capital of Brazil will become a meeting place for South Americans and Arabs. The Ministry of Foreign Relations expects two thousand entrepreneurs to come to BrasÀ­lia to attend the South America-Arab Countries Summit.

Although the encounter is mostly political, with plans for various meetings among heads of State, the Summit will also provide an opportunity to do business.


Representatives of the Mercosur, the Andean Community, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the Economic and Social Council will participate in the opening ceremony.


The seminar for businessmen will include five thematic panels. The first will deal with the distinctive commercial cultures of the two regions.


It will be a space devoted to the exchange of information on how to do business in each region.


In the second and third panels, entrepreneurs will analyze trade flows and investment opportunities. The last two panels will cover tourism and legal possibilities.


The transportation sector is expected to be one of the focuses of discussion among entrepreneurs. At present no direct ocean shipping lines exist between South America and the Arab countries. Concurrently with the seminar there will be an investments fair.


The Ministry of Foreign Relations is already planning a special security scheme for the Summit. According to counselor Sérgio Taam, coordinator of Delegation Support in the Summit Work Group, Army soldiers will be positioned at strategic points around the city.
