Business opportunities for Finnish companies in Brazil

Welcome to join the Team Finland visit to Brazil on 6 – 10 May, 2019, led by Mr. Petri Peltonen, Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland.

By taking part in this visit, you will be able to discover business opportunities within the field of cyber security & health.

Why Brazil?

Brazil is the world’s eighth largest economy – resource driven, but diversified – by nominal GDP and Latin America’s most dynamic country, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The country is a vigorous democracy with free multi-party elections and strong, stable institutions.

Opportunities for healthcare innovations
The Brazilian healthcare market is one of the most promising and attractive in the world: the country has the 3rd largest private health sector globally and the 2nd largest private health insurance market. From 2016 to 2025, 21% growth is expected, which would make Brazil the 5th largest health market worldwide.

Opportunities for Finnish cyber security solutions
Brazil is the second leading source of cyberattacks and the third most-affected target. The total Brazilian cybersecurity expenditure in 2016 was  over $3.5 billion with strong growth over the next five years, reaching $5.5 billion in 2022. Three sectors lead the investments in cyber security, Banking, Retail/e-commerce and Telecommunications.
