With the backdrop of the Olympics taking place in Rio de Janeiro this year, and learning from the experiences of the London Olympics and the World Cup in Brazil, the Casa Rio Program aims to “attract up to 40 new projects to the country within the next two years.”
Also mentioned in the news release, “For the next six months Rio de Janeiro will gather the best of what the world has to offer in order to promote business development. Within a six-month schedule – March to September – there will be 43 high-quality events, such as conferences, business rounds and investment opportunity presentations. That is the Casa Rio proposal.”
This program is coordinated by Rio Negocios, and “Casa Rio will be the investment attraction initiative that caps off the city’s Olympic cycle,” and aims to “stimulate matchmaking and facilitate business development with partnerships or by taking advantage of the local supply chain.”
