Infrastructure: Investment & M&A

PwC and Banco do Brasil are delighted to invite you to attend our “Brazil Seminar 2015” on Thursday, 22th October 2015.

Brazil has long been well recognized as an important emerging economy and trading partner for Global Investors and in particular Chinese companies. Over the past decade Brazil has achieved a record impressive economic growth, while also building its Global profile on the back of successfully hosting the soccer World Cup and now in preparation to host the next Summer Olympics 2016. The world is watching Brazil more than ever before.

However, like many emerging and commodity based economies, Brazil’s economy faces significant challenges in the face of falling commodity prices and decelerating growth. With significant capital already invested in Brazil, this is a situation of great relevance to Chinese investors. While there are challenges, there are also great opportunities for astute investors given the overall size of the Brazil market and the unique combination of the richness of its energy, mining and agricultural resources which will continue to present Brazil as a lucrative market for many foreign investors. Cheaper commodity prices together with the slow down in overall economic growth provides an interesting opportunity to consolidate investments or to make new investments at the low end of the economic cycle. Aligned to that and committed with the country development, Brazilian Government recently launched a new Infrastructure and Logistics program. This program is aimed to attract investment in different sectors and creates opportunities for Chinese companies interested in doing business in Brazil, specially through M&A strategy.

Whether as an exiting investor or in assessing new investment opportunities in Brazil, it is very important to carefully consider and understand Brazil’s market and business practices and to grasp the opportunities by utilizing Chinese technologies and service know-how, whilst not being unnecessarily distracted by the recent developments with the Brazilian economy. Tapping into Brazilian market expansion can help Chinese companies boost their engagement in the Latin America region, which is vitally important for China’s future growth prospects.

Our guest speakers will provide insights and perspectives on the potential benefits and opportunities in Infrastructure and M&A in Brazil, and why developing business partnerships in Brazil can allow Chinese companies to further penetrate this strategically appealing emerging market.
