Positivo BGH, a technology joint venture focused on the African market, will meet with representatives of Brisanet, Ceará telecommunications company, from May 26 to 27. The meeting, which is being promoted by the Brazil Africa Institute (IBRAF, in Portuguese), intends to approach and discuss possibilities of technological transfers between Brazil and the African continent.
The meeting, which will be held at Brisanet’s headquarters – in the city of Pereiro, in the State of Ceará –, will be attended by Positivo BGH CEO Miguel Stief, Brisanet founder José Roberto Nogueira, and IBRAF president João Bosco Monte. “The technology transfer that Brisanet can make through this potential partnership with Positivo BGH for a space as important as Africa, where 54 countries have economies that grow more than the world average, is certainly targeting big companies. We understand that this is an opportune moment of dialogue, which may be the genesis of other businesses to emerge later,” explains the IBRAF president.
Positivo BGH, a joint venture between Brazil’s Positivo and Argentina’s BGH, has begun investing in the African market since 2015, when it inaugurates a factory in the capital city of Kigali, Rwanda. In the same year, the company began operating in Kenya, joining the country’s digital literacy program, JKUAT. Brisanet, considered by the National Telecommunications Agency as the best telecommunication services provider in Brazil, is a company that has its own production of technology and equipment, which allows the supply of fiber optic connection at low cost to cities within the States of Ceará, Rio Grande do Norte, Paraíba, and Pernambuco.
“The Brazil Africa Institute has promoted, among its activities, the approximation of Brazilian interests in Africa and Africans in Brazil. This visit is very important because it opens to Ceará the chance to have more technology developed here in Brazil being taken to Africa and other regions,” concludes the IBRAF president.
