Sustainable ports: Rotterdam leads trade mission to Brazil

ROTTERDAM, 1 March 2024 – A significant delegation from the Netherlands is set to embark on a trade mission to Brazil, focusing on sustainable harbour development and energy transition in a collaborative effort to foster Dutch-Brazilian relations.

Dutch-Brazilian collaboration under the spotlight

Led by Alderman Robert Simons, responsible for Port, Economy, Hospitality, and Governance, the delegation's visit is prompted by the Dutch-Brazilian cooperation within the Green Ports Partnership programme, initiated during the World Hydrogen Summit. The mission aims to support Dutch companies in exporting and investing in three specific Brazilian regions, highlighting port development and the transition to sustainable energy.

Trade mission with a diverse Dutch representation

Fourteen Dutch companies, including several from Rotterdam, are participating in the mission. These companies bring expertise in ports, logistics, innovation, and sustainability, valuable to Brazil as it progresses in energy transition. The agenda includes visiting the largest Latin American logistics fair, Intermodal in São Paulo, and tours of the Rio Grande and Pecém ports.

Alderman Simons expressed enthusiasm about leading the mission: "I look forward to guiding our Dutch companies this coming week. The journey is focused on strengthening our ties with Brazil and creating new trade opportunities, beneficial for our economy and the acceleration of the energy transition."

The mission, spanning from 2 to 9 March, is organized in collaboration with the Port of Rotterdam NV, Rotterdam Partners, the Dutch diplomatic network in Brazil, and RVO.
