Business opportunities between Brazil and Slovenia

As Brazil stands as one of the top growing markets, new business partners appear. I recently met with some Slovenian companies interested in exploring Brazil and was surprised to find out what this small country has to offer.

Slovenia is per capita the richest of Slavic states. Situated in South-Central Europe, Slovenia has borders with Italy and Austria and is positioned at the crossroad of major trade routes.

Apparently, (and according to Wikepedia) the competitiveness of the Slovenian economy is below the EU, due to high taxes and a tight business structure. But what I found out is that the country is a niche of high technology, an area where Brazil is in need for suppliers to foster its growing consumer market and industry.

The Slovenia Chamber of Commerce is a pro-active institution. I met with Masa Repez and Ales Cantarutti from the Chamber, in Vienna.

Ales will be in Brazil in an official mission. A meeting with Slovenian companies and authorities will be held on 19th June at FIESP’s headquaters in Sao Paulo. Check the agenda and register here.
