As the seventh wealthiest economy in the world, Brazil seems ready to take the next step toward securing its national growth and development and becoming independent of short-cycle economic slowdowns. For an emerging country like Brazil, digitalization opens new doors for increasing competitiveness.
On June 16-17, 2015 Siemens is promoting an international press trip about digitalization in São Paulo, Brazil. During this event, it will be possible to see how Brazil is going digital and explore what industry and academia are doing to equip the workforce with the skills needed to succeed in this new era and how local leaders are strengthening the resurgence of the manufacturing sector. Also, as part of Siemens 110 year in Brazil celebration, a media round table with Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser, will take place on June 16th. During this event, the results of an unpublished digitalization survey will be present at first hand. This study have been done by Siemens and Fundação Dom Cabral, and surveyed 250 customers in 20 different industries here in Brazil and asked them what impact digitalization is having on their business.
