FGV Europe organizes visit by Infrastructure Minister Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas to Germany

Brazil’s infrastructure minister, Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas, visited Germany on November 28 and 29, at the invitation of FGV Europe and German company Deutsche Bahn. The minister was accompanied by a delegation of six representatives of the Infrastructure Ministry and the national development bank, BNDES. Other participants included the director of FGV Projetos, Luiz Carlos Duque, as well as representatives of Siemens, the Sao Paulo Brazil-Germany Chamber of Commerce and German development finance institution DEG.

The study tour began in the city of Hamburg, where the delegation met with representatives of Hamburg Port Consulting (HPC), followed by a visit to the Port of Hamburg and a meeting with the port authority.

On November 29, a bilateral infrastructure forum was hosted by the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Berlin. During this event, Freitas presented Brazil as a country of investment opportunities with a solid portfolio of concession projects and privatizations.

The event’s aim was to help attract significant amounts of foreign investment to Brazil in the infrastructure sector from investment funds and companies, besides positioning FGV as a partner in investment-related decision making.
