Investe São Paulo

Governor Geraldo Alckmin ordered the president of Investe São Paulo, Juan Quirós, the expansion of the Export Incentive Program, SP Export, launched by the Agency in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil), and which is already in course across the state of São Paulo. The conversation took place during the opening of the Seminar A Agenda Externa do Brasil – Comércio Clima e Energia (Brazil’s Foreign Agenda – Trade, Climate and Energy), organized by the International Relations & Foreign Trade Institute (IRICE), on April 5, at the Millenium Office Park, in São Paulo.

The event brought together business leaders, academic experts and associations of exporters concerned with the need for a solution regarding the resumption of growth and to find in the foreign market an alternative for the difficult period currently experienced in the country. During the opening, the governor highlighted the potential of the state of São Paulo and encouraged the industry to work even harder.

Juan Quirós pointed out that SP Export already held a major event in Campinas, during the creation of Poupatempo do Exportador (a public service intended to provide streamlined support to exporters), which makes life easier for entrepreneurs interested in entering the world of exports. The next event of the program is scheduled to take place on April 8, in Sorocaba. There are visits scheduled to take place in Ribeirão Preto, Franca and all major cities of the state.

Within the same program, there are also events focused on the dissemination of products from São Paulo abroad, such as the event scheduled to take place in June, in Colombia and Peru. From April 10 to 14, a mission with the same purpose will be held in the UAE. According to Quirós, the governor’s incentive allows São Paulo to position itself as a protagonist in the national and international scenarios.

The IRICE event was attended by market and international relations exponents, such as Emerson Capaz and Rubens Barbosa. The event addressed topics such as Brazil’s Policy in Relation to Climate Change (Tasso Azevedo); The Implications of Paris Agreement (Marco Antônio Caminha); Brazil’s Energy Policy (David Zylbersztjan) and the Geopolitics and Geoeconomics of Renewable and Non-Renewable Energy Sources (Adriano Pires).
