Webinar: Opportunities for U.S. Suppliers in Brazil’s Airport Sector

The International Trade Administration is pleased to announce a webinar for U.S. exporters focused on the opportunities in Brazil’s Airport Sector.

Since 2012, five of Brazil’s largest airports have been successfully privatized through concession rounds.

The auction generated over US$ 14 billion for the federal government, which is now being invested in 270 regional airports throughout the country through a new Regional Aviation Plan.

Join the U.S. Commercial Service, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and expert speaker from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Dr. Respicio Espirito Santo who will provide a brief overview of the Brazilian airport sector and how U.S. companies can position themselves to make sales.
