Making Caipirinhas from Lemons:

Doing Business in Brazil


Wednesday | June 8, 2016 | 8:30-12:30



Herzog Fox & Neeman Asia House

4 Weizmann Street - Tel Aviv, Israel - 6423904


Facing the deepest economic crisis in its history and an unstable political scenario, Brazil has been an enigma to the international business community in recent years. Despite the turbulence of the massive Lava Jato corruption investigation that has reached senior-level figures in Brazil’s political and business communities, Brazil still attracted over $50 billion dollars of foreign investment in 2015.


  • How can foreign companies survive the current crisis and use it as an opportunity?

  • How can I do business in Brazil today?


Herzog Fox & Neeman, the Israel-Brazil Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Economic Mission of Israel in Rio de Janeiro, in collaboration with Hogan Lovells, invite you to join us as we answer these questions at our event, Making Capirinhas from Lemons: Doing Business in Brazil, held at the Herzog Fox & Neeman offices on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.
