Think Plastic Brazil

Ricardo Segovia, President of Apex-Brazil, has signed an agreement renewal with the National Plastic Institute, increasing by 43% funds for the Think Plastic Brazil Program

International sales of Brazilian processed plastic products intended for the Household, Packaging, Agribusiness and Construction verticals are the focus of Federal Government’s investments for the next biennium. A new agreement for the period 2019-2021 was signed this Friday (11/29/2019) by the President of Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), Rear Admiral Sérgio Segovia, increasing by 43% funds made available for actions to encourage exports and internalization of industries in the sector.
“It is a pleasure to be here in person for the renewal of the agreement with the INP that will continue Think Plastic Brazil’s actions over the next two years. The Program has achieved excellent results in the past 16 years, and we seek the internationalization of companies, in order to remain in full swing in the next biennium ahead of the verticals of Household Utilities, Construction, Agribusiness and Packaging,” said the President of Apex-Brasil.
“Today is a historic day thanks to the importance of Think Plastic Brazil in encouraging plastic exports. We have a great opportunity to encourage these international sales to exceed our goals, bringing competitiveness to the national plastic chain,” said José Ricardo Roriz Coelho, president of the INP Decision-Making Body.
“The signing ceremony of the agreement between Apex-Brasil and INP is an important milestone, as it reinforces the program’s objectives in all its verticals. We are looking for new growth opportunities in international sales. After many years, we won the opportunity to increase the program’s actions with the largest contribution of resources, which should lead to ways to improve exports,” said Edson Terra, President of INP and Vice President of Braskem.
The actions of this agreement will focus on the markets of North America (Canada, United States, and Mexico), Central America (Costa Rica and Cuba), South America (Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Peru), Europe (Spain), Africa (South Africa and Kenya), and the Middle East (United Arab Emirates).
