During her discussions with the FIESP delegation in Sao Paulo, where a 14-member Indian business delegation accompanied her, Patil reportedly told them: ‘Both sides have the acumen, desire, will and skill to take (the trade relation between the two countries) forward.’

According to India’s Ambassador to Brazil Hardeep Singh Puri, it was Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva who suggested that Patil meet the FIESP delegation.

Puri also pointed out that it was the first time the president was accompanied by a business delegation.

Although trade between India and Brazil has touched $3.12 billion, officials said it was ‘nothing’ in comparison to the opportunities both countries have.
