Join the Department for International Trade South West to hear from DIT Advanced Engineering Sector Leads in Mexico and Brazil.

This exclusive event for South West based Advanced Engineering companies will highlight the substantial opportunities available to UK businesses in Mexico & Brazil. Supply chain gaps have been identified across all areas of Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing in both markets. In Mexico, for example, there is a $50bn import market for auto parts, machine tools and other manufacturing technologies.  In Brazil, companies have reported substantial enquiries within segments such as Metrology, Industry 4.0, and Components. All of these demands are in addition to a growing trend in electrification and future technologies.  British Advanced Engineering companies have a good reputation as potential solution providers in the region, so there are many opportunities to discover.
