Dubai – MENA Herald: Automechanika Dubai 2016, the latest edition of the largest international automotive aftermarket trade show for the wider Middle East, concluded today (10 May, 2016) and witnessed the active participation of leading Brazilian companies. A total of 23 Brazilian companies showcased their various products and services within a 216-sqm stand. The participation of the attending companies was organized through a sector project called Brasil Auto Parts by the National Auto Parts Industry Union (Sindipeças) and by the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), which aims to promote auto parts manufactured in Brazil abroad. This is Sindipeças’ 10th participation in Automechanika Dubai.
The strong Brazilian presence will further reinforce the close ties between Brazil and the Arab World which have enjoyed highly productive bilateral trade over the past few years. In 2015, The Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce announced that Brazilian exports to Arab countries registered significant growth, with the UAE recorded as the second biggest market for Brazilian exports in the Arab countries last year at AED 9.175 billion.
Among the notable companies that participated in the event were Autolinea, a manufacturer of brake parts and cylinder heads; Autotravi (rubber seals and finishes); Baterias Moura (batteries); Biagio (turbochargers); Chiptronic (electronic fuel injection modules; Freios Controil, (brakes); as well as several other companies.
Dr. Michel Alaby, Secretary General and CEO, Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce said: “It is exciting to see such notable Brazilian companies playing an active role in this event. Automechanika Dubai is a vital networking platform that allows companies in the sector to showcase the latest developments and innovations and exchange knowledge and expertise with key influencers and decision makers across the Middle East, Asia and North Africa. It was a truly informative and productive event as a number of vehicles and products were exhibited and we are happy with the positive feedback from both parties. We look forward to their participation in the coming years and more fruitful collaborations in the future.”
