São Paulo Mayor’s visit to East Asia Investment Group
On the afternoon of July 27, 2017, CW CPA had the honor of meeting the Mayor of São Paulo, Mr. João Doria, during his visit to Shenzhen Qianhai East Asia Investment Group. Together with his team from the municipal government, the Mayor engaged in an in-depth discussion with representatives from East Asia Investment Group. Both parties reached a consensus on the win-win proposition to strengthen cooperation between São Paulo and Shenzhen.
At the conference, Mr. Li from East Asia Investment Group highlighted the four fields that they are particularly keen on developing: real estate, mining, medical as well as infrastructure services. He hoped to seek further opportunities for collaboration with businesses from São Paulo.
Being the largest city in Brazil and South America as well as the seventh largest city in the world, São Paulo provides a favourable investment and business environment for Chinese companies; and the city is also brimming with untapped opportunities, said the Mayor.
The Mayor thought highly of the rapid economic development of Shenzhen and expressed his optimism about a stronger partnership between São Paulo and Shenzhen. Afterwards, he played an introductory video of São Paulo, which left participants with an impression of its vibrancy and breathtaking scenery. In addition, he encouraged Chinese companies to participate in some of the privatization projects back home in São Paulo and indicated the overwhelming support he had already received.
Mr. Thomas Wong, Founding Partner of CW CPA, shared his vision and insights into the Brazilian market with the Mayor as well as other participants and emphasised how CW CPA can assist Brazilian companies in their expansion into Hong Kong and Greater China.
CW CPA’s Latin Department will be leading a delegation from Shenzhen to São Paulo (Brazil), Santiago (Chile) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) at the end of August. Its aim is not only to promote the optimal business and investment environment of Shenzhen, but also to extend our global reach in Latin American markets so as to consolidate our role as the preeminent professional advisory and accounting firm in China’s Greater Bay Area, to which businesses from all corners of the world go for growth.
