BNDES Africa

Over the last few years, Africa has brought development back to the fore, with growth rates above the worldwide average. International trade between the continent and Brazil has managed to keep in step with such progress.

The Brazilian government has sought to strengthen its ties with the continent within the context of growing economic exchanges with developing countries.This foresight is reflected in the BNDES’ appointment of a division specifically for issues involving Africa, and in the creation, in December 2013, of its representative office in Johannesburg – known as BNDES Africa.

With the focus on information, prospecting, partnerships, institutional relations and technical cooperations, the BNDES' office plans to concentrate efforts to create partnerships and investments across the entire African continent.
