Brazilian exporters looking to capitalize on Lebanon’s construction boom

Lebanon: Tuesday, June 04 - 2013 @ 13:25

ABCC is attending the exhibition for the third consecutive year and will be joined by six Brazilian companies that will showcase their products and services at ABCC’s 105-square meter exhibition stand.

Brazilian construction exports to Lebanon consist of nails, tacks, drawing pins and similar articles, as well as glazed ceramic flags and paving, hearth tiles. Other Brazilian construction materials exported to Lebanon include unglazed ceramic flags and paving, hearth tiles, other works of plastics, and appliances for pipes, boiler shells, tanks and vats.

To generate optimum business prospects, ABCC is utilizing its local partnership with the Beirut and Mount-Lebanon Chamber to organize matchmaking activities between the participating Brazilian companies and the local chamber members at Project Lebanon. Moreover, in partnership with the Brazilian Embassy in Beirut, ABCC will visit a construction site, a finished building and a home center for construction products as part of initiatives undertaken to enable Brazilian businessmen to better understand the Lebanese construction sector.

Dr. Michel Alaby, General Secretary and CEO of Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, said: “Lebanon has been a very important growth market for Brazil’s construction exports. During the past two editions of Project Lebanon, which the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce has participated in, we have observed a growing interest in Brazilian products and services among local developers and contractors in Lebanon. This strongly demonstrates the huge potential to further grow Brazil’s construction exports, particularly in light of the ongoing construction boom sweeping Lebanon. In this regard, the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce will leverage its influence and strategic alliances to help open more opportunities for Brazilian suppliers to expand their activities in the local construction market.”

The Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce has been established to consolidate and expand partnerships, generate opportunities and bring Arabs and Brazilians together. It has been in operation for more than 50 years, playing an active role in boosting economic, cultural and tourism activities, and facilitating the flow of information between Arabs and Brazilians.
