Building a bridge from Latin America and Central Europe (Day 2 on the WKO event in Vienna)

After a long day of B2B, we deserve a glass of wine. Gathering Argentina, Colombia, Austria and Brazil

The Austrian Chamber of Commerce surely did a nice job in bringing together Latin American and Central European companies. According to Christian Gessl from WKO, on the first day there were 340 people from 37 countries. B2B meetings were intense, with 700 meetings booked.

Why Austria

In past years many Brazilian companies settled in Austria, stimulated by good double tax agreements and of course, the unquestionable Austrian charm, that mingles Germanic pragmatism and Latin sympathy. Among those companies: Brazil Foods, TAM, Banco do Brasil.

Coming soon

WKO promises to invite again Latin American companies to the Danube conference, which will focus on environment and sustainable energy issues.
