Consul presents at the Latam Term Introductory Course

Consul Hans Andreas Aebi, Head of the Swiss Business Hub Brazil in São Paulo, participated as a guest lecturer at the Latam Term, a partnership between the University of St.Gallen and the FGV EAESP - Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo da Fundação Getulio Vargas.

Mr. Aebi taught about the role of business diplomacy, the practical experiences of doing business in Brazil, geopolitics and friend-shoring, and went into detail about challenges and opportunities for SMEs in fields such as infrastructure, and innovation in HealthTech and MedTech.

"Brazil is a key business and trade partner for Switzerland. We work on complementary fields and can help one another become more efficient and sustainable", he said.

Students of the course "Latin America: a geopolitical guide" were enthusiastic about Mr. Aebi's open and frank conversation and participated actively in the discussions. We are very thankful for this partnership with the Swiss Business Hub.
