New Brunswick Multi-Sector Mission to Brazil
New Brunswick has been active in targeting and implementing a logistics development strategy focusing on North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. The addition of CMA-CGM, the second largest container line in the world, to the Port of Saint John has provided New Brunswick shippers with additional capacity through which to grow their bilateral trade with Latin American markets. Through the earlier stages of this project, the most promising markets for Central and South America have been identified as Brazil and Mexico.
The overall goal of the project is to identify and increase new and existing trade opportunities between New Brunswick and Brazil in order to attract more trade volume of container cargo through the identification of these new trade opportunities through New Brunswick based container cargo facilities..
