The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) has expanded its reach to the South American region with the successful launch of the WBCG office in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This office is the first step to establish a direct link between Brazil and Walvis Bay promising importers and exporters a 7-day shipment schedule. The Corridor Group’s strategy is to open up the entire southern African market to the vast manufacturing base of the Brazilian economy. The launch was attended by key stakeholders in the transport community. The event was hosted by the Namibian Ambassador to Brazil, HE Lineekela Mboti. The guests were treated to presentations by the Port of Walvis Bay and the WBCG on the benefits and opportunities on the link between South America and southern Africa. The keynote speaker for the event, Dr. Joao de Almeida Sampaio Filho, who is the Vice President of Mafriq, has noted the importance for Brazilian firms to explore the SADC market for both imports and exports. The Marfrig Group is a multinational company with operations in the food and food services sectors in Brazil and in 15 other countries around the world.
