While the strong links between Australia and Brazil 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, scheduled for Tuesday August 2, will feature insights from key professionals working in the construction and design sectors in Perth and help pave the way for future collaboration.
