ROBUST INFRASTRUCTURE

Brazil has infrastructure prepared to meet the demands of globalized markets. Given its fundamental importance to sustainable economic development, the Brazilian government has a specific agenda for investments in the field, focused on public-private partnerships with support from federal funds.

The Accelerated Growth Plan (known as the PAC), was launched by the federal government in 2007, and has provided a strong boost to the development of infrastructure in the country. In its first four years, PAC helped to double Brazilian government investment from 1.62% of GNP in 2006 to 3.27% in 2010, in social and urban, logistical and energy infrastructure. In 2011, the program entered its second phase, PAC 2, with investments of R$ 955 billion forecast from 2011 to 2014.
