On June 29, 2015, SDV organized its first Matinale Brésil at the Maison de l’Amérique Latine in Paris, France.
The chosen theme was: “To handle your Export Operations with Success in Brazil”, countries’ experts, Carole Bertrand (Market Director of Latin America) and Pierre-Stéphane Guerineau (SDV France Brazil Delegate) invited clients and prospects, operators on the same route. 20 of them, SMEs and key accounts from the Healthcare, Aerospace and Energy industry answered present.
Throughout the morning, our Market experts approached the customs challenges in Brazil from exporters’ responsibilities to clients’ rights and obligations, to merchandise nationalization. Duly noted and appreciated by participants, the testimony of our client BENETEAU was a chance to share its experience with the audience, regarding good practices and the common pitfalls to avoid. At the closing ceremony, CCIP Latin America’s Counselor acknowledged SDV and highlighted its expertise and capacity to assist companies in their export operations.
Following the interventions, further exchanges between participants took place, delighted to be able to share their experiences on common topics; this was captured by Sylvie Gueulle (Key Accounts Manager for Alliance at HRA Pharma): “Again, thank you for this excellent and interesting presentation which allowed us to gauge the difficulties present when exporting to Brazil and the major role of an export partner like SDV.”
This event was orchestrated by SDV, which allowed us to reinforce our leadership image in France.
