ABCC Special Event and Welcome to Perth for the Brazilian Ambassador
August 2, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEST
The ABCC’s WA team will welcome His Excellency Mauricio Carvalho Lyrio, Ambassador of Brazil, at this special networking event, which will also feature a discussion around the strengthening links between Australia and Brazil in the areas of construction, design and sustainability.
Whilst the connections between the two countries in sectors such as mining and energy are well recognised, it is lesser known that there is a very strong contingent of Brazilian professionals working in construction and design roles right around Australia.
Furthermore, in June 2022 the Brazilian government committed $1.3 billion to invest in sustainable infrastructure projects in the country – hopefully Australia can be an important partner in this major new push, with expats in both countries contributing on multiple fronts, thereby further strengthening the Australia Brazil relationship.
This networking event will feature insights about the significant involvement of Brazilian professionals in these important sectors in WA, with speeches by Flavia Kiperman, Director/Principal – Heritage for multidisciplinary planning and urban advisory firm element, and Rodrigo Pereira, Sustainability Consultant for life cycle design software eTool.
Please join us for this fantastic opportunity to meet Ambassador Lyrio and learn about another key area of collaboration between Australia and Brazil.
