This is especially crucial amid the flourishing healthcare sector in the region. We look forward to more robust trade relations between them. Rest assured that the Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce will continue to do its part in terms of looking for more avenues to further expand and enhance their bilateral trade in the coming years."
