The Chamber of Commerce Brazil-Texas is a business association whose primary objectives are to foster mutual trade and create opportunities between Brazil and Texas. Therefore, the present Luncheon and Webinar has been designed to offer the audience the opportunity to learn more about what the state of Texas has offered to small and emerging businesses, companies with high capability of creating jobs and even companies considering corporate headquarters relocation options, vis-à-vis the state’s financing, fiscal and investment incentives programs.   
 
State governments often partner with the private sector on economic growth through economic development incentives to compete with other states and even globally for business attraction, increased economic activity and job creation. The State of Texas offers numerous incentive programs, including tax credits and exemptions, grants, loans and targeted-funds.

Investindo No Texas: Os Programas De Incentivo Fiscais


A Câmara de Comércio Brazil-Texas (BRATECC), é uma associação cujos principais objetivos são fomentar o comércio mútuo e criar oportunidades de negócios entre o Brazil e o Texas. Sendo assim, o presente Almoço & Webinar foi preparado para proporcionar ao público a oportunidade de conhecer as oportunidades que o estado do Texas oferece às empresas, sob o ponto de vista dos programas de incentivo ao desenvolvimento econômico.   
 
Os governos estaduais costumam se associar com o setor privado visando o crescimento econômico, através de incentivos de desenvolvimento econômico para competir com outros estados, e mesmo globalmente, para atrair negócios, aumentar e diversificar a atividade econômica e incrementar a geração de empregos. Neste sentido, o estado do Texas oferece numerosos programas de incentivos que incluem isenções fiscais, fundos e subsídios, dentre outros.
 
Deste modo, PwC e BRATECC convidam para este Almoço & Webinar para discutir como o estado do Texas está fomentando e estimulando o seu crescimento econômico e, como os seus programas de desenvolvimento econômico podem se adequar aos objetivos, planejamento e expectativas comerciais das empresas.  
 
Algumas questões que devem ser discutidas neste evento:
- Qual a relevância dos programas de incentivo econômico no processo de escolha do local onde se pretende investir?
- A partir de que momento as empresas começam a se beneficiar dos incentivos oferecidos pelo Texas?
- Quais as principais ferramentas de incentivo para as pequenas e médias empresas? 
- Como os programas do Texas podem beneficiar as indútrias aeroespacial, de energia, tecnologia e manufatura?
- Qual o grau de flexibilidade do governo ao negociar os programas de incentivos com as empresas privadas? 
- Os programas oferecidos pelo Texas foram desenvolvidos visando alcançar alguma indústria em particular?
