The permanent secretary of the Council of Ibero-American Businessmen (CEIB) and CEO of CEOE, Narciso Casado, travels to Brasilia to prepare the IV Latin American Forum of the MSME, to be held in the Latin American country at the end of April. During his visit, Casado will meet with various Brazilian government authorities and with representatives of the CEOE's homologous employer, the National Confederation of Industry (CNI).

The preparation of the Ibero-American Forum of MSMEs is one of the lines of work that CEOE and SEGIB develop to prepare the next Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government, to be held in Andorra in November 2020, under the slogan "Innovation for sustainable development-Objective 2030". In this regard, the Innovation Forum in May in Ecuador and the Talent Retention Forum in June in Portugal can also be highlighted as preparatory events for the Summit.

These events are just a sample of the work carried out by CEIB and SEGIB, and now joined by the Ibero-American Federation of Young Entrepreneurs (FIJE). In addition, these organizations have a common frame of reference for belonging to the largest business platform in the world, the OIE, which brings together more than 150 organizations from 140 countries.

Latin American Forum of MSMEs

The Ibero-American Forum of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises is a space for reflection, exchange of good practices and discussion about the reality of Latin American SMEs, their support policies, new organizational models and the promotion of strategic alliances between countries. It is a joint initiative of the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB) and the Council of Ibero-American Businessmen (CEIB), which this year will be held on April 29 in Brasilia.

During his visit, Casado will hold meetings with the secretary of SMEs, Juliana Natrielli; with the deputy secretary of Industry Development, Commerce and Innovation, Antônia Martins; with the ambassador of Spain in Brasilia, Fernando García Casas; and with representatives of the Young Entrepreneurs Association of Brazil and of FIJE. In all of them, the permanent secretary of CEIB will be accompanied by the deputy general secretary of SEGIB, Marco Pinta Gama and the head of Economy and Business, Pablo Adrián Hardy; as well as of a delegation of the homologous employer of CEOE, the National Confederation of the industry (CNI), headed by its executive manager, Joao Emilio P. Gonçalves.
