Private organisation LIDE expands to Australia, now based in 17 countries
LIDE was founded in Brazil in 2003 and it is now present in 17 countries and 6 continents, focused on assisting economies globally to be more competitive, efficient and ethical.
It is a private organisation, which seeks to bring together business leaders, and also to provide a link to the public sector, to help strengthen free trade and stimulate economic and social development. It is guided by ethical principles and corporate management practices from the public and private sectors.
LIDE’s target is senior executives from national and international companies. It promotes the connection of corporations through programs and forums and supports initiatives dedicated to sustainability, education and social responsibility.
Luiz Fernando Furlan, LIDE Global Chairman, said “It’s a positive step that LIDE is expanding to Australia, it will help in building our network in Asia Pacific, which is a significant priority for our organisation, and it will also assist companies from the region to explore our global footprint.”
LIDE Australia will initially focus on important areas of strength for Australia including the tourism, international education, technology, logistics, infrastructure, sustainability, agribusiness, mining and retail sectors.
Carlos Ferri, LIDE Australia CEO, said, “We’re very excited that LIDE is now in Australia. It will open up new business opportunities in critical industries to help boost our economy, bringing direct investment into Australia.
And importantly, we can partner with LIDE groups around the world to build a robust network for Australian companies.
We also have the opportunity to provide that crucial link between the private and public sectors in 17 countries.”
LIDE will kick off in Brisbane and Sydney on 18 and 21 of June with the Australia Brazil Agribusiness Forum. They will discuss Australian and Brazil relations and investment in regards to agribusiness and its impact on the Australian economy. —
