Breakfast Seminar - How to penetrate and stay profitable in the Brazilian Oil & Gas Market

Norwegian businesses within the Oil & Gas Service segment are frequently seeking new business opportunities within the growing Brazilian Oil & Gas market. Last year Norwegian businesses exported goods and services worth more than NOK 4.7 billion to Brazil. However, more stringent Brazilian requirements for local content and the use of local labour in an already heated Brazilian market represent challenges to be overcome.
