Digitalisation and 5G networks on agenda when Brazilian Communications Minister Fábio Faria visits Finland

Communications Minister of Brazil Fábio Faria will visit Finland on Friday 5 February 2021. His visit is part of a wider five-country tour that key Brazilian decision-makers undertake to survey potential 5G network suppliers in the world. Brazil is planning to organise an auction of 5G frequencies in spring 2021.

From the Brazilian point of view, Finland is among the more natural and reliable partners for digitalisation projects. Finland’s strengths include high technological expertise as well as digital safety, reliability and transparency. Security and legislative matters concerning 5G networks are among the main topics of the visit. Among others, the Brazilian Communications Minister will meet Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade Ville Skinnari in person and Minister of Transport and Communications Timo Harakka via video connection.

Finland and Brazil have a close and constructive partnership relationship. Brazil is Finland’s biggest trading partner in Latin America, and as a country with 220 million inhabitants, it offers Finnish companies many opportunities to expand cooperation and partnerships.
