Brazil Gearing Up For EXPOCOOP 2014
Co-operative enterprises from around the world will be showcased in Curitiba, Brazil in May when the South American city hosts Expocoop 2014.
The biennial trade fair provides co-operatives with an opportunity to display their products, network and do business. The last Expocoop was held in Manchester, U.K. in 2012 as part of Co-operatives United.
In addition to the exhibition itself, Expocoop will host a number of side events, including a program on co-operatives and gender and a forum for co-op leaders from the BRICS group of countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
Curitiba is the capital and largest city in the Brazilian state of Parana, located 338 kilometres southwest of São Paulo.
