The Brazilian state-run trade and investment promotion agency, Apex-Brasil, is offering to mentor Brazilian companies that wish to sell their goods or services in the Chinese e-commerce market.

A written statement posted on the Apex-Brasil website says the mentoring is part of a programme meant to increase Brazilian exports to China and the United States.

The statement says marketing consultants Web2Asia will brief Brazilian companies on the Chinese e-commerce market and help them make plans for success in that market.

Companies must apply for mentoring by October 29, Apex-Brasil says.
