Training Brazilians abroad

Just a video I found interesting. It’s from Deutsche Welle English.

“Brazil is building a steel plant due to go into operation next year (this was written in mid-2008). It’s being built by the concern Thyssen-Krupp and it’s also the biggest investment the company has made in its history.

When completed it will employ 3.500 people at Sepetiba Bay in the state of Rio de Janeiro. As part of the project Thyssen-Krupp has brought 150 Brazilians to Duisburg in Germany for training. It’s a big logistical operation that requires 70 interpreters to be on site around the clock as well as a 24 hour hotline where the Brazilians can vent their problems. Former student housing close to the plant in Duisburg also had to be renovated to accommodate them.”
