Brazil Network Day

​The Brasil Network Day (BND) is an initiative of the Embassy of Brazil in The Hague and will take place on 13 March 2018. Organized twice per year (spring and autumn) since 2011, BND consists of a two parts program-event: Plenary-Panels (14:00 – 18:00) and a Network Cocktail (18:00 – 20:00).

By bringing Brazilian and Dutch speakers together, fostering discussions on current issues and promoting networking among companies, BND gathers local Governmental authorities, representatives of Brazilian & Dutch multinationals, local entrepreneurs (doing or considering doing) business and/or investing in Brazil, opinion makers and press.

The 14th BND edition will take place on 13 March 2018 and will be organized in partnership with the Municipality of Rotterdam and in cooperation with the Government and Federation of Industries of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, the Southernmost state of Brazil.
