Entrepreneurs from the port community of Paraná are participating this week in an international mission to Spain, to strengthen commercial relations and discuss alternatives in sustainability and technology. The group was received on Sunday night (20) in Valencia and will visit two other Spanish cities throughout the week.
The delegation is organized by the Brasil Export Forum and counts on the presence of the Minister of Infrastructure, Marcelo Sampaio. “The visit allows an exchange with the Iberian ports and also between Brazilians, who travel together, exchange experiences and solutions. Our trade with Europe is fundamental and having this learning moment allows us to continue on the path of progress and development, for the country’s port sector, agribusiness, industry and mining”, he said.
From Paraná, there are 12 participating entrepreneurs. Most are members of the Association of Terminals in the Export Corridor of Paranaguá (ATEXP). The bulk shipment model has attracted the attention of the countries visited. “Before Spain, we participated in Portugal Export, in the ports of Sines and Lisbon. Our pool system and the efficiency of grain shipments is a world reference”, highlights the director-president of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.
Before leaving for Spain, the group was received by the Brazilian ambassador in Portugal, Raimundo Carreiro. In Valencia, the delegation was welcomed by the directors of Fundacíon Valencia Port and by the president of the port authority of Valencia, Aurélio Martinez.
