NATI, in partnership with OceansAdvance, ACOA & IBRD, invites eligible NL companies to participate in the upcoming mission to Brazil, including the Navalshore 2014 Expo and Conference, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, August 12 - 14, 2014.

Interested companies will also be offered the opportunity for supported assistance to travel to another region of the country for business to business activities depending on the delegation's interests. It is envisioned that such an activity would be undertaken the week prior to Navalshore, with the mission ending in Rio de Janeiro after the conference.
