Norway Brazil Week(s)

The idea is to create an umbrella for several events that seek to emphasize and strengthen successful cooperation on various levels between both countries. Moreover the creation of a meeting place of high-level decision makers from both Norway and Brazil is envisaged, while also creating an arena where Norwegian SME’s can actively engage with business partners, clients and technology leaders.

Norway-Brazil Background

The bilateral relation between Norway and Brazil began in 1842, when the Norwegian flagged ship Nordstjernen first arrived in Rio de Janeiro loaded with codfish. In exchange for the cod, the Norwegian ship returned with sugar and coffee. Because of this first trade, the two nations started a long tradition of exchanging these products and the activities of Norwegian shipping companies in Brazil. Additionally, Brazilians are currently among the biggest consumers of Norwegian codfish and Norwegians are the biggest Brazilian coffee drinkers in the world.
