Rio set to attract international investors during London Olympics

Or should we say: Rio takes off?

The city of Rio de Janeiro’s investment promotion agency – Rio Negocios – will hold events to attract global investments to the region during the London 2012 Olympics. The agenda in London includes a series of sector-based panels and networking events followed by a roadshow in some European cities. I am honored to be part of Rio Negocios’ team of advisors in Europe.

Conferences and one-on-one meetings

We will be organizing one-on-one meetings with companies interested in investing in Brazil. This is a chance to hear the Rio story and explore ways to access opportunities in the region, including in the energy, high-technology, healthcare and audiovisual sectors.
