The information was supplied by the director at the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, Sami Roumieh, who had a meeting last week with Karim in Damascus, capital of the Arab country.

    "He wants to come to Brazil to get to know the food market," said Roumieh.

    According to him, Karim cited sugar, coffee, sardines, meats, and canned foods as the main interests of Syria. Roumieh is now in the Arab country, attending and accompanying Brazilian businessmen at the Damascus International Fair, which opened to the public on Thursday. During the fair, Syrian businessmen also showed interest in buying food from Brazil.

    According to the Market Development coordinator at the Arab Brazilian Chamber, Rodrigo Solano, around 40 businessmen visited the stand of the organization yesterday, and the sectors most interesting sectors presented by them, besides foods, were those of dental equipment, furniture, auto marts, and medical and hospital products.

    The Syrians also sought the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce stand to offer olive oil and dry fruit to Brazil. "The stand saw a lot of movement on the first day. "There is great interest surrounding Brazil in the fair," said Solano.

    According to him, another Arab country present at the fair is Jordan, which also showed much interest in negotiating with Brazil. Solano visited the stand of the country's Department of Trade Promotion, and he talked about the activities of the Arab Brazilian Chamber. "They became very much interested, and are willing to form partnerships to promote business missions among the two countries," claimed Solano.

    Another stand visited by the operations coordinator was that of the Made in Syria organization, which specializes in marketing and promotion of Syrian products and industries in foreign countries. The company has five commercial offices in Syria, one in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Sudan, and France, and is in the process of opening two other offices in Germany and Saudi Arabia.

    According to Solano, Made in Syria seeks to promote Syrian companies by means of catalogues and CDs. The catalog distributed by them has 72 pages of advertisements for companies and products in the textile, chemical, pharmaceutical, engineering, foods, and services sectors. The marketing manager at the company, Sohaed Jarkeen, who received Solano, also handed him some catalogues and CDs for promotion in Brazil.

    In addition to Solano, the Arab Brazilian Chamber stand also counts on the Market Development analyst at the organization, Marcus Pillon, and a representative of the company Biagio Turbos, for auto parts. At the stand, there are catalogues and folders of 36 Brazilian companies in various sectors.
