Greetings from the Ambassador

Welcome to the website for the Danish representations in Brazil!

Our mission at the Embassy in Brasília and at the General Consulate in São Paulo is to look after Danish interests by maintaining and strengthening Danish-Brazilian relations and partnerships though a broad range of areas, such as: political or/and economical dialogue, commercial relations and cultural collaborations.

Brazil is in various ways an amazing country, full of diversity, with a multifarious culture, incredible nature and a forthcoming population – but Brazil is also an important country for Denmark. Brazil is politically a major regional player that traditionally has had many common values with Denmark. Besides, it is also the world’s 8th largest economy, which makes its market very interesting for Danish companies in a commercial perspective. Through the past few years, we have initiated a close collaboration with the Brazilian authorities in important areas as digitalization of the public sector and a collaboration pointed at product validation in the pharmaceutical industry. These are two areas Brazil has expressed challenging and areas where Denmark possess a special competence.

The Embassy is also a part of a close Nordic collaboration in Brazil. Together with the Swedish, Norwegian and Finish Embassy as well as the Danish cultural institute in Rio, the project Nordic Dialogues was created. Nordic Dialogues puts focus on Nordic perspectives in Brazil such as equality, trust and sustainability - both in regards to culture and politics.

The Danish Embassy maintains as well the official link to Surinam and Guyana. 

On our website, you can find more information on the Embassy’s work, including how the Embassy can assist with citizen service as well with Danish-Brazilian business relations. 

You can follow me on Twitter and the Danish Embassy on Facebook.

My colleagues and I are happy to provide further information if needed.

Sincerely,

Nicolai Prytz
Ambassador
