Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service, is organizing a Trade Mission to Brazil, to be led by a Department of Commerce official.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:17 Jun 21, 2010 Jkt 220001 representatives from a variety of U.S. safety and security equipment firms interested in gaining a foothold in the fast-growing Brazilian markets. Commercial Setting Brazil is the largest economy and population in Latin America, and offers considerable export opportunities for the United States. The Brazilian market for public and private security equipment and services in 2009 was valued at approximately $ 20 billion. Due to an increasing level of crime rates in Brazil, local trade contacts believe that the market will expand by 20 percent in 2010. According to the Brazilian Association of Electronic Security Companies (ABESE), approximately 5,000 companies serve the electronic security sector in Brazil, including equipment manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and services providers. The increase of security monitoring services and security devices in residences contributed to the fast expansion of the sector. U.S. products enjoy good receptivity among large Brazilian and multinational companies that demand quality, durability and state-of-the-art technology. However, Chinese manufacturers are challenging the U.S. market share by offering similar products at lower prices. They are reportedly stepping up aggressive marketing techniques. The federal government plans to invest in areas such as building and refurbishing existing prisons and police stations, training, communications systems improvements, vehicles, helicopters, airport security equipment, bullet proof vests, cameras, ammunition, guns, GPS systems, cellular phone blocking systems (for prisons), fire protection systems, and intelligence equipment. The Brazilian government will also invest heavily in high-tech equipment to provide adequate security for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, both to be held in Brazil. The Brazilian federal government will be in charge of managing World Cup security, and anticipates numerous investments in security improvements for the Games and the host cities. In private security alone, Brazil spent over US$ 17 billion in 2008. In electronic security, the market is estimated at US$ 1.5 billion. Today, electronic security equipment is not limited only to banks and commercial or industrial buildings. The increase in security monitoring services and security devices for residences is contributing to the fast expansion of this market. The U.S. manufacturers of security equipment have been operating successfully in Brazil, holding approximately 50% of the import market, mainly for electronic security. Mission Goals The mission’s goal is to provide firsthand market information and to provide access to key government officials and potential business partners for U.S. security firms desiring to expand their presence in the Brazilian market. The need to protect individuals, property and the government from losses and to protect assets is creating new opportunities for U.S. firms in this market. Mission Scenario The mission will include meetings with individuals from both the public sector (e.g., public security authorities and officials) and private business (e.g., local security systems companies). Participants will receive a briefing that will include market intelligence, as well as an overview of the country’s economic and political environment. A networking reception is planned at each stop. The mission will also include a brief about the Soccer World Cup 2014 and 2016 Olympics organizations, briefings by public security authorities on planned projects and expected infrastructure and security needs, and one-on-one business meetings between U.S. participants and potential endusers and partners. Follow-on business meetings in other cities in the region can be set up before or after the trade mission for an additional price, depending on participants’ wishes. Proposed Mission Timetable The proposed schedule allows for about a day and a half in Rio de Janeiro ˜ and Sao Paulo and a visit to Brasilia for companies interested in introducing their products to the Brazilian Government. Efforts will be made to accommodate participating companies with particular interests that require individual schedules within one stop. Mission arrives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Safety and Security Equipment and Services Trade Mission To 
Brazil

AGENCY: International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Mission Description

    The United States Department of Commerce's International Trade 
Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service, is organizing a 
Trade Mission to Brazil, to be led by a Department of Commerce 
official. This event is intended to tap immediate opportunities in the 
private and public security areas in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and Sao 
Paulo. The mission will include representatives from a variety of U.S. 
safety and security equipment firms interested in gaining a foothold in 
the fast-growing Brazilian markets.

Commercial Setting

    Brazil is the largest economy and population in Latin America, and 
offers considerable export opportunities for the United States. The 
Brazilian market for public and private security equipment and services 
in 2009 was valued at approximately $ 20 billion. Due to an increasing 
level of crime rates in Brazil, local trade contacts believe that the 
market will expand by 20 percent in 2010.
    According to the Brazilian Association of Electronic Security 
Companies (ABESE), approximately 5,000 companies serve the electronic 
security sector in Brazil, including equipment manufacturers, 
distributors, retailers, and services providers. The increase of 
security monitoring services and security devices in residences 
contributed to the fast expansion of the sector.
    U.S. products enjoy good receptivity among large Brazilian and 
multinational companies that demand quality, durability and state-of-
the-art technology. However, Chinese manufacturers are challenging the 
U.S. market share by offering similar products at lower prices. They 
are reportedly stepping up aggressive marketing techniques.
    The federal government plans to invest in areas such as building 
and refurbishing existing prisons and police stations, training, 
communications systems improvements, vehicles, helicopters, airport 
security equipment, bullet proof vests, cameras, ammunition, guns, GPS 
systems, cellular phone blocking systems (for prisons), fire protection 
systems, and intelligence equipment. The Brazilian government will also 
invest heavily in high-tech equipment to provide adequate security for 
the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, both to be held in Brazil. 
The Brazilian federal government will be in charge of managing World 
Cup security, and anticipates numerous investments in security 
improvements for the Games and the host cities.
    In private security alone, Brazil spent over US$ 17 billion in 
2008. In electronic security, the market is estimated at US$ 1.5 
billion. Today, electronic security equipment is not limited only to 
banks and commercial or industrial buildings. The increase in security 
monitoring services and security devices for residences is contributing 
to the fast expansion of this market. The U.S. manufacturers of 
security equipment have been operating successfully in Brazil, holding 
approximately 50% of the import market, mainly for electronic security.

Mission Goals

    The mission's goal is to provide first-hand market information and 
to provide access to key government officials and potential business 
partners for U.S. security firms desiring to expand their presence in 
the Brazilian market. The need to protect individuals, property and the 
government from losses and to protect assets is creating new 
opportunities for U.S. firms in this market.

Mission Scenario

    The mission will include meetings with individuals from both the 
public sector (e.g., public security authorities and officials) and 
private business (e.g., local security systems companies). Participants 
will receive a briefing that will include market intelligence, as well 
as an overview of the country's economic and political environment. A 
networking reception is planned at each stop.
    The mission will also include a brief about the Soccer World Cup 
2014 and 2016 Olympics organizations, briefings by public security 
authorities on planned projects and expected infrastructure and 
security needs, and one-on-one business meetings between U.S. 
participants and potential end-users and partners. Follow-on business 
meetings in other cities in the region can be set up before or after 
the trade mission for an additional price, depending on participants' 
wishes.

Proposed Mission Timetable

    The proposed schedule allows for about a day and a half in Rio de 
Janeiro and S[atilde]o Paulo and a visit to Brasilia for companies 
interested in introducing their products to the Brazilian Government. 
Efforts will be made to accommodate participating companies with 
particular interests that require individual schedules within one stop.
