It is clear that there is much interest in developing CIPURSE as an integral part of the Brazilian ecosystem. We look forward to expanding OSPT Alliance’s reach in Brazil and the Latin America region and, based on the positive reaction and participation from our members, we hope to plan many more such events in the future.”
