“I am more used to talking about Brazil for Chinese, but today I am going to do the opposite: I am going to talk about China for Brazilians.” That is how Li Yinsheng started his presentation last Wednesday, 6, at the Challenges and Prospects for Brazil, event promoted by the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (FGV).
The CEO of CTG Brasil participated in the debate Structural Bottlenecks: Education, Financing and Infrastructure, and had the opportunity to talk about his insights into infrastructure development in China in the past decades, touching on the interesting potentials that Brazil and China could explore together, under the context of One Belt One Road Initiative, that has been extended to this part of the world.
He was of the opinion that more infrastructures are urgently needed in Brazil, not only to provide the capacity for future growth, but also to increase the interconnectedness within this country, to help people in less developed areas to become more productive workforces.
He also introduced China’s energy sector and shared the challenges facing the sector to be greener and more sustainable. “China’s commitment to Paris Agreement is not only a challenge but also a great opportunity to transform the energy landscape in the country.”
“We need to be attentive to sustainable issues even when we are focused on growing and expanding our business. CTG Brasil carries the sustainability DNA from the roots of both China and Brazil, and we are committed to running a total sustainable business”, he commented.
