Brazilian ambassador to take part in TIACA’s executive summit
MAY 12, 2015: TIACA has invited His Excellency, Ambassador Helio Vitor Ramos Filho of Brazil in Miami, to address a workshop examining the challenges for air cargo in the Brazilian market at TIACA’s Executive Summit on the 20th of May. Joined by Deputy Consul Bruno Rodrigues, he will attend the debate on how to make the air cargo market in Brazil more competitive. “Latin America is an exciting market with lots of opportunity, but understanding the challenges to operating there is important to succeed,” said Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA. “Transit times, often due to customs procedures for air cargo in Brazil are some of the longest in the world, for example, and that is something we will be looking into at the Summit. “We look forward to the Ambassador and Deputy Consul’s insights.” The Brazil session is part of a series of workshops and panel discussions focusing on the opportunities and challenges of the Latin American market, as well as globally. The three-day Executive Summit, between the 19th and the 21st May, will also host debates and information sessions tackling some of the main issues affecting air cargo users globally, including the latest developments on Lithium battery regulations, and Advance Data rules. TIACA is co-locating its event with the Cool Chain Association, which will be hosting its conference, Improving The Perishable Air Cargo Supply Chain, in Miami on the 18th and 19th of May 2015.
