Strong Business Potential Uncovered in High Level Meetings
MONTREAL, Oct 5, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- The Canadian Tactical Training Academy (CTTA) was the featured company in a recent trade mission to Brazil sponsored by the province of Quebec.
The trade mission took place from August 29 until September 2, and included visits to Sao Paulo and Brasilia. Angelo Marino, VP of Operations of CTTA represented the company.
CTTA conducted worthwhile meetings with a number of world class Brazilian companies and government agencies including Petrobras, Embraer, Flight Technologies, Dimensao, The Port authority of Santos, the Brazilian Association of Defence and Security Industry, the Sao Paulo Department of the Defence Industry, and Union of State Highway Patrols, among others.
Mr. Marino was extremely pleased with the quality and content of the discussions and indicated that "The companies and government departments that we met were very interested in our products and services. There are a great many opportunities in Brazil for CTTA and I believe that important contracts will be signed in the future."
Mr. Marino added that he was pleased with the efforts of the Ministry of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade, competently represented by Quebec based Karine Couture and Brazilian based Jose Castro, for organizing the trade mission.
CTTA also met with the Canadian Vice Consul and Trade Commissioner in Sao Paulo as well as the regional Manager for the Canadian Export Development Corporation.
CTTA participated in many discussions regarding Risk Management and intends to negotiate consulting contracts to provide services based on its extensive expertise and experience in this sector of the security industry.
Going forward, CTTA will follow up specific requests by providing additional information to various companies and agencies.
Mr. Marino indicated that he expects Mr. Castro, Quebec's commercial attache in Sao Paulo, to visit CTTA's headquarters in Montreal in the next few weeks.
During the next few years Brazil will spend more than $1 Billion on all aspects of public security as it prepares to host many very important international events. Security expenditures will include training, risk assessment consulting, and surveillance devices for all levels of the military, police, and events security.
Upcoming events include:
- The Brazilian Grand Prix, held annually at Interlagos, is part of the Formula One world Championship.
- World Youth Day to be held in Rio de Janeiro in 2013 which will include a visit by Pope Benedict XVI.
- The FIFA World Cup of Soccer to be held in 12 cities in 2014.
- The Summer Olympics will be hosted by Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
Brazil normally attracts 5 million tourists per year who spend more than $6 Billion dollars. These numbers are expected to rise sharply over the next years.
