    The president of Apex-Brasil, Sergio Segovia, who visited CIIE 2019, highlights that the event is a great opportunity for Brazilian companies because it provides a very close contact with both specialized professionals and potential business partners as well as with the Chinese general public.


    "It is a chance for companies to test the acceptance of their products with the public and expand the visibility of their brands," says Segovia. Due to circulation restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, most Brazilian companies participate through local representatives. Otherwise, they would have to fulfill the 14 days of quarantine imposed by the Chinese government. China is currently Brazil's largest trading partner.

The result was driven by exports, which grew 39% in the period. Imports have been recovering since 2017 but are still 7% below the 2013 and 2014 levels.
