The Brazil Machinery Solutions (BMS) export promotion project, the result of a partnership between ABIMAQ (The Brazilian Machinery Builders’ Association) and ApexBrasil (The Brazilian Trade and Export Promotion Agency), supported the participation of 13 national companies at NAMPO 2024, the largest agricultural fair on the African continent, held on May 14-17 in Bothaville, South Africa.

This fourth consecutive participation of the BMS program at the event was attended by the following companies: Baldan, Brudden, Cimisa, Dynamics do Brasil, Indutar, Inroda, MagnoJet, Marcher Brasil, NB Máquinas, Piccin, Prensso Máquinas, São José Industrial, and Vence Tudo. In total, $3.3 million were generated between completed and expected deals during the four days of the event.

The initiative is part of the BMS project effort that aims to strengthen the image and expertise of Brazilian agricultural machinery and equipment companies and to expand business opportunities on the African continent. In 2023, Brazilian exports of agricultural machinery and equipment totaled $1.8 billion, a stable volume compared to the previous year, showing a slight growth of 0.15%. Nevertheless, South Africa, the 5th destination for exports in this segment, presented exceptional results, totaling $95 million, with Brazilian exports in the segment destined for the country showing a growth of 29%.

Paulo Guerra, Institutional Relations Manager at ABIMAQ, analyzed the strategic results of Brazilian participation in NAMPO 2024. “The presence of BMS at NAMPO 2024 is crucial for our industry. South Africa serves as an essential gateway to the African continent , which has enormous potential. The mechanization of family farming in southern Africa is a great challenge, and the 13 Brazilian companies participating in the business roundtable brought innovative solutions that can transform agricultural productivity and sustainability in the region. This event offers an invaluable opportunity to establish lasting partnerships and to promote Brazilian technology in the agricultural sector.”
