São Paulo – The Annual Investment Meeting ( AIM ), an event about foreign direct investment (FDI), will feature exhibitors from 25 countries, including Brazil. The conference runs from April 8 to 10 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Brazilian Pavillion will feature 11 agribusiness companies. The space is organized by the Brazilian Minister of Agriculture , Livestock and Supply ( MAPA ).

Activities of the Brazilian companies that are going to the event include aviculture, pisciculture, coffee-growing, trading, beverages, telecommunications, certification, organic agriculture, and general agriculture. The stand will have two rooms for B2B and meetings between companies. The first one includes six tables for meetings that will occur throughout the three-day event. 'We've worked with them (companies) to understand their main interest. We've told Brazilian companies their potential partners and contacts being made for the B2Bs,' completed Matta.
According to him, Brazilians will use the events' workshops to acquire information about the investment sector. Among the supporters of the action at AIM are the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency ( APEX-Brasil ).
