When: 21 – 22 June 2017

But while there are certainly signs of positive movement, many are still concerned about the slow pace of growth, with weak import and exports cited as a continuing concern by many – where levels are still well below those of 2012-2014 before the recession, and the lack of reform and speed in the country's public ports sector governance and bureaucracy.
With this in mind, PFI is excited to be returning to Rio on 21 - 22 June 2017 to shine the spotlight on the status of the country's port and terminal developments, and their impact on the national economy. Where are investments being focused, and what are the effects of these investments on Brazil's beleaguered economy? What factors will influence these developments, such as the role of politics and the knock-on impact of current trends and merging alliances in the shipping market. What is the outlook for the country's trade and what role do Brazil's ports and terminals have in this?
PFI Rio 2017 will bring port finance, maritime, transport, infrastructure and industrial experts together to assess the challenges and opportunities of Brasil's promising maritime and port market outlook.
