After US and Germany, Brazilian Exporters Get Distribution Center in Portugal

The creation of a Distribution Center (CD) for Brazilian Products in Vialonga/Lisbon, Portugal, was announced this Tuesday, April 11, by the president of the Export and Investment Promotion Agency (APEX), Juan Quirós.

Approximately 150 Brazilian companies in 20 sectors of the economy have already manifested their desire to be part of the CD in Portugal.

An initial investment of 280,000 euros was required to set up the center, which will be located in the region’s main logistics and infrastructure area, 20 kilometers from the port of Lisbon and 15 kilometers from the airport.

Portugal will be the third country with a center in which Brazilian entrepreneurs from various sectors can store merchandise, participate in business rounds with foreign buyers, and maintain a showroom and offices.

The first was inaugurated a year ago in Miami, in the United States, and the second, less than a month ago, in Frankfurt, Germany.

Spain

The Spanish minister of Labor and Social Affairs, Jesus Caldera, will meet with the Brazilian ministers of Labor and Employment, Luiz Marinho, and of Social Security, Nelson Machado.

At the meeting the two countries will sign a memorandum of understanding on cooperation and technical assistance in labor matters.

The document, which represents the fruit of the Brasí­lia Declaration on the Consolidation of the Spain-Brazil Strategic Partnership, ratified by the presidents of the two countries on January 24, 2005, will intensify bilateral cooperation in the areas of employment, professional training, labor relations, working conditions, and immigration.
