FIFA World Cup in 2014 Creates New Opportunities in Brazil

Brazil must act quickly to improve its transportation infrastructure in time for the World Cup it will host in 2014. The Brazilian government has pledged billions of dollars to improve the urban transit system in the twelve host cities.  A major part of this investment will include integrated bus corridors, subway lines, and light rail systems.  U.S. companies will be competitive in providing goods and services related to traffic control, safety, maintenance, and a broad range of wireless and wire line communications-based information and electronics technologies.

Join APTA, FTA, and the U.S. Commercial Service on September 17 for an hour long webinar on opportunities in Brazil.
