The governor of the state of Pará, Simão Jatene, and the president of Fiepa, José Conrado, were among those who visited the stand at the opening of the event, which brought together about 5,000 people.
The visitors were received by directors of the Bauxite and Alumina area of the Rio de Janeiro office, by the directors of Hydro Paragominas, Alunorte, Albras and the CAP project, in addition to other company professionals present.
On the shelf visitors were able to see samples of the different operations in Brazil, starting with the bauxite obtained in Paragominas, passing through the alumina that is produced by Alunorte - and, in the future by CAP - Albras aluminum and extruded products from Hydro Itu .
Other aluminum products that are part of people's daily lives were also presented at the stand to communicate the benefits offered to society by the “metal of the future”.
The organization of the event expects a total audience of more than 30,000 visitors, a good opportunity for Hydro to reinforce its new position in Pará before society. In addition to businesspeople and professionals in the productive sector, FIPA also receives a large number of young people and students who visit the stands in search of more information about the companies present at the Hangar Convention Center in Belém.
Lucila da Silva, retired, and her son André Luiz da Silva, a bakery entrepreneur, were among those who visited Hydro's production chain at the stand.
"It is interesting to know that the 'stone', which is bauxite, will be transformed until these products are on display," said Lucila. For his son, curiosity was much greater. "I had no idea how to produce aluminum and I was fascinated with everything I learned at the Hydro booth," he declared.
The relationship with the local society and the strengthening of the dialogue with relevant stakeholders are some of the opportunities obtained with Hydro's participation in FIPA.
“We are here to stay and that is why we had to be present showing that we are engaged in Pará and Brazil and that we consider our interaction between local society and the company to be very important,” said Fernando Simões Henriques, director of operations at Hydro's Bauxite and Alumina area.
