Join us for the first BCCC International Trade & Logistics Committee webmeeting of 2021 "Cybersecurity on Logistics & International Trade".

As our mission is to promote and improve bilateral trade between Brazil and the richest State in the U.S. Nowadays, we know very well that electronic automation and artificial intelligence have been ahead of trade transactions, logistics management, and transportation navigation systems.
