Representatives from the government of Minas Gerais took advantage of the trip to China to reach an agreement between the state and the technology multinational Huawei. There is also an agreement regarding investments by Celer Biotecnologia in Montes Claros, a city in the north of Minas Gerais. The partnerships, which should be made official this Monday (6), were confirmed to Itatiaia by interlocutors who, like the report, are on Asian soil.
Monday, in fact, will be the first day of governor Romeu Zema’s (Novo) public agenda in Shanghai, China. The two partnerships will consist of the first results of Zema’s trip to the Asian continent. The Minas Gerais delegation, which arrived in the country at the end of last week, dedicated the last few hours to internal coordination to boost cooperation with foreign businesspeople.
The agreement with Celer must be formalized at an event with company representatives. Negotiations with Huawei, on the other hand, will be made official during a visit by the governor to the company’s facilities, which produce equipment such as smartphones, computers and watches.
With more than 20 years in the market, Celer is a partnership between Brazilian and Chinese businesspeople. The company specializes in human and veterinary clinical diagnosis. The company also operates in the development and production of systems to instrument and automate laboratories.
Zema will be accompanied by Flávio Roscoe, president of the Federation of Industries of the State of Minas Gerais (Fiemg). The entity organized a delegation that took around 180 businesspeople from the state to China in order to try to align partnerships.
Huawei, although it operates in at least five Brazilian states, still does not have investments in Minas Gerais. The multinational specializes in Information Technology solutions.
Coverage of the Business Mission to China, which has the participation of the governor of Minas Gerais, is offered by FIEMG and partner companies.
