DEG Representative Office Sao Paulo
Mercosur is one of the focus areas where DEG turns its attention to. The Mercosur states have proved to be economically robust. Brazil's economy in particular has developed well during the last years. At the same time, however, many people in that region still live below the poverty line. Resources and income are unevenly distributed. A big challenge is to further stimulate economy growth while putting an end to the increasing environmental destruction.
DEG has been active in Brazil and in countries such as Argentina since the mid-1960s. The current portfolio has a volume of about 650million euros. Since 2002, DEG has a representative office for Mercosur in São Paulo, with its team offering profound information to clients and their investment projects.
From DEG's point of view, there are promising prospects for companies for example in agribusiness and the manufacturing industry, but also in the infrastructure sector.
