  7. 7. Investments requiredCan be divided into two major groups:> The key to hosting the Games: > Arenas > Hospitality > Accessibility and mobility> Those that make it possible to leave a legacy for citiesand virtuousness for the Host Country.
  8. 8. Accessibility to the stadiums and the hospitality poles> Priority for investments within the urban infrastructure: > Ensure good accessibility by mass transit in stages > Facilitate access to the poles of hospitality and its connection to the stadiums > Facilitate mobility between the airports and the poles of hospitality> The improvement of mobility is a broader need that goesbeyond the 2014th World Cup and the 2016th Olympics: > For game days, special operations to ensure traffic mobility > Specifically Brazil and Sao Paulo have great experience in big events, such as Formula One race
  9. 9. Entrance to the country and regional movement> Given the distances, in relation to the outside and betweenhost cities, the main movement of people (internal andexternal) to follow the games of the 2014th Cup and 2016thOlympics will be by air.> The air companies will be able to meet demand, but thebottleneck is in the airport infrastructure and superstructure.> The airports need to be substantially enlarged (somemodernized) both in runway and passenger terminal.> The air control needs to be improved.> Care services to users, both at entry and the output, willneed to be substantially improved: > Procedures, facilities, software and staff training.
  10. 10. PAC - Growing Acceleration ProgramPAC is a government program that has been implemented in the pastfour years, a infrastructure investment of $ 300 billion intransportation, energy, sanitation, housing and water resources.The expansion of investment in infrastructure is a fundamentalcondition for the acceleration of sustainable development in Brazil.Thus, the country can overcome the bottlenecks in the economy andencourage increased productivity and reduced regional and socialinequalities.The set of investments is organized into three main vectors:> Logistical infrastructure, involving the construction and expansionof highways, railways, ports, airports and waterways;> Energy Infrastructure, corresponding to electrical generation andtransmission, production, exploration and transportation of oil,natural gas and renewable fuels, and Social;> Urban Infrastructure, sanitation, housing, subways, commuter railand water resources.
  11. 11. PAC - Growing Acceleration Program – cont.The Logistics Infrastructure planned expenditures from 2007 to2010 is $ 20 billion; for Energy, $ 160 billion, and for the Social andUrban, $ 100 billion.A program of this magnitude is only possible through partnershipsbetween the public and private investor, added to a constantarticulation between the federal entities (states and municipalities).The plan considered the construction, upgrading, duplication andrecovery of 45,000 km of roads, 2,518 km of railways, expansion andimprovement of 12 ports and 20 airports, generating over 12,386 MWof electricity, construction of 13,826 km of transmission lines, as wellas new petrochemical plants, pipelines, and biodiesel plants.For the housing, the PAC planned investments of $ 60 billion,benefiting four million households. The program was also planned toresult in water and sewage services to 22.5 millionHomes, and water infrastructure to 23.8 million people.
  12. 12. PAC - Growing Acceleration Program – cont.But the government, dueto very poor analisys, baddiagnosis and misplanningissues, is still struggling tosurpass meres 15% of theplanned.
  13. 13. PAC 2 - Growing Acceleration Program part 2PAC 2 is nothing more than the original PACrepacked and with new marketing aproach, nowfacing new chalenges:> Most of the infrastructure investments areurban large interventions and need years to bepropperly deployed; unfortunately most of themare still in the feasibility and enviromentalstudies phase;> airports are nowadays one of the biggestbottlenecks we have, constraining development,hampering regional development and threateningthe success of the Cup and the Olympics.

  16. 16. Brazil | Expectation
  17. 17. Construction sector expects to build 2.1 bln by 2020 m2 for housingFolha de S. Paulo - São Paulo / SP - MONEY - 28/02/2011By 2020 Brazil will have to build 2.1 billion square feet ofbuildings - the equivalent of more than three times the sizeof Singapore, according to Abramat (industry association ofconstruction materials).This volume would be able to meet a housing need of 20million new homes between 2009 and 2020, according to theorganization, which based its calculations on residentialprojects an average of 105 m2 area.The size of the numbers may alert the market not only by theamount of land that will be required (approximately 900million square meters), but also by the ability of theworkforce, with 2.7 million additional jobs.
  18. 18. Brazil will invest U.S. $ 3.3 tri 2014 O Estado de S. Paulo - São Paulo / SP - ECONOMY - 28/02/2011Petroleum and Energy will contribute $ 500 billion, study finds BNDESAlexandre Rodrigues - O Estado de S. PauloThe binomial oil and electric energy will pull the countrys growth with investmentstotaling more than half a trillion dollars over the next four years. The account was made​by Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Economico e Social (BNDES), to upgrade its mapping of investments that points to a total reversal of $ 3.3 trillion into the economy between 2011 and 2014.The figure was designed from information on prospective projects in industry,construction and infrastructure in 15 sectors, which represent half of total investment inthe economy. This figure reached U.S. $ 1.6 trillion, 62% more than was investedbetween 2006 and 2009. The figure also represents a doubling of the bank had detectedin the previous survey to industry and infrastructure for the period 2010-2013.(...)The chain of oil and gas called attention to the jump from the $ 295 billion in theprevious survey to $ 378 billion in four years starting this year. In comparison with the $205 billion that invested between 2006 and 2009, the exploration of oil and gas picks upthe industrial growth with a 84% increase in investments by 2014.(...)The highlight is the 260% growth in investments in ports, which will total $ 18 billion infour years.(...)
  19. 19. High demand for engineers in construction leaves Alert CBIC - Brazilian Chamber of Construction Industry - Brasilia / DF - NewsRegistration of new professionals not included with the vacancy rate in theindustry; groups speak in importing hand workPaul Justus and Eve RobertsonThe countrys growth is creating a gap between the creation of vacancies for professionalswith higher education sector and the civil daconstrução registration of new engineers .Last year, for example, as they were created 11,559 jobs for graduates in this sector, theRegional Councils of Engineering, Architecture and Agronomy (Creas) throughout Brazil havegranted registration to 6,529 engineers civilians. Although not included in the accountshiring architects, data sinalizamo squeeze gripping the industry.(...)"The figures are alarming, especially when analyzing the number of students who attendand leaving for the faculties of engineering." Melo says dropout further complicates the taskof meeting the demand. "The formation of the second degree is very poor, so manystudents drop out of courses after repeated failures in subjects like Calculus," he says.Shortages for the Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA), to consider the level ofgrowth of 4.5% in 2011, Brazil should have shortages in specific areas of engineering (seemore details in the article opposite). "Looking back, we see increased demand since 2004.(...)Faced with the problem, bedridden Brazilian Construction Industry (CBIC) has alreadyinitiated talks with the Embassy of Portugal to discuss the possibility of importing engineersfrom that country.
  20. 20. Projects of infrastructure and public services need look no physical works Economic Value - São Paulo / SP - BRAZIL - 14/03/2011To meet the increasing demand and enable the rates of economic growth envisaged overthe next year, Brazil will need to invest anything between $ 172 billion and $ 291 billion inlogistics and transportation by 2023. The horizon of investment consider what has alreadybeen applied since 2008, but the assessment of Bernardo Tavares de Almeida and Hélcio ​Tokeshi, expenditure will be made only if the country change the way you plan and carryout projects of infrastructure .In a chapter of the book "2022: Proposals For A Better In Brazil the Bicentennial Year" indealing with the bottlenecks of infrastructure, Almeida Tokeshi made a diagnosis of currentsituation and propose the creation of a "modern system of public services." The first changeis conceptual: the emphasis of projects should be in the public services and not the workphysically."We, the citizens, less interested in the physical structure that allows us to have publicservices, and more the quality of those services. Whether the school building is new, old orretired, what matters is that portfolios have comfortable rooms ventilated and well lit,clean bathrooms and patios, and other services essential to learning, "say the authors. "Byhighlighting the service passed to subordinate technical needs of the users ofinfrastructure . "(...)
  21. 21. President Dilma announces $ 18 billion for 2014 Cup O Diário - Maringá/PR - ESPORTES - 16/03/2011The president Roussef said on Tuesday that Brazils investment in infrastructure to host theWorld Cup in 2014 should reach R $ 18 billion.With upbeat speech, she projected benefits to the countrys development, as with theemergence of new jobs - has even predicted, including the creation of 330,000 direct jobsand another 400,000 temporary.In addition to reform and build stadiums, Brazil needs to make further investments, such asthe expansion of airports, considered the main bottleneck in the country, and improvementin key sectors such as transport. According Dilma, these investments, for the most part, arefederal."The World Cup will contribute to our development project, creating jobs and increasingincome of the worker. estimate that it will create 330 000 direct jobs and 400,000temporary. The event will make Brazil an international showcase - hope to receive about600 000 tourists. In the infrastructure sector, investments will reach $ 18 billion, with 68%share of the federal government, "said Dilma in interview to talk with President BlogPlateau.(...)
  22. 22. Mesmo com obras, aeroportos ficarão saturados na Copa, diz estudo IG - Economia - - EMPRESAS - 22/03/2011The investment of $ 4 billion in the reform of Brazils main airports, announced by Infraerolast year, will not suffice to prevent Brazil hold the 2014 World Cup with saturated airports.This is the conclusion that a study has just been published by the Federal University of Riode Janeiro (UFRJ), which estimates an increase of 60 million in passenger numbers in 2014using the 16 airports in the cities that will host the games.The study concluded that the reform of Infraero to meet demand from the airline industryin 2014 is underestimated. In reaching these conclusions, the professor UFJR EltonFernandes, coordinator of the study took into account the pattern of space per passengerestablished by the Federal Aviation Administration, an agency which regulates civil aviationin the United States. It said airports should have at least 23 square meters for eachdomestic passenger and 14 for international. "After the works, there will be a shortage of366 thousand square meters to meet demand in 2014, "concludes the professor, in thestudy.(…)The Soccer World Cup in Brazil is expected to generate an additional movement in theairline industry than 3 million passengers in 2014. For Professor Fernandes, the bulk oftourists can cause collapse of the airline industry during the World Cup, caused by anincrease in the use of an infrastructure that is already saturated.

Legal Grounds to Bid (Public Bids) in Brazila) a foreign company that has a subsidiary in Brazil could join the bidding, sinceit is authorized to operate in the country;b) the foreign company that has no official branch in Brazil (not authorized tooperate in the country) may participate in international biddings only;(...)d) the international competitive bidding as a rule, should be performed in themode of competition is allowed, exceptionally, the modalities of making callprices and, under § 3 of art. 23 of Law No. 8.666/93;e) in relation to specific sectors of national economy, unaware there differentnorms for the participation of foreign companies "operating in the Country" or"not operating in the country";The National Bidding Law No. 8.666/93 Demands the companies technicalreferences Provided by the Architects and engeneers professional body(CREA, just like lawyers BAR), for the employees and for the companiesItself, Which Prevents newly constituted companies from bidding public(except for international biddings)
  25. 25. Legal Grounds to Work in BrazilThe foreign company, whatever its purpose, may not, without the authorizationof the Executive Branch, working in the country, even by subordinateestablishments may, however, except in cases contemplated by law, be ashareholder of a Brazilian corporation.As for legalization for operational purposes, the company authorized can not startits activity before it is entered in the record itself on where it should beestablished.Moreover, the foreign company allowed to operate is required to have apermanent, representative in Brazil with powers to resolve any issues and receivesubpoena by society. Moreover, the representative can only act to third partiesfiled and registered after the instrument of his appointment.The law also stipulates that any amendment to the contract or the statute dependon the approval of the Executive, to take effect on the national territory.A foreign company if desired, may be national, determining the code thatauthorized by the executive branch, the foreign company permitted to operate inthe country can be nationalized by transferring its headquarters to Brazil.
  26. 26. Legal Grounds to Work in Brazil – cont.Several foreign companies have chosen toacquire stake in domestic companies, eitherthrough the purchase of the company,either through an exchange of sharesbetween companies.
  27. 27. Interested on the promising Brazilian market, professionals from other countries landing in Brazil after workWhile the Brazilian economy grows by leaps and bounds, the lack of planningby governments and the resulting structural problems of the country alsoappear more to the naked eye. The need for investment in roads, ports,airports and the growing construction market and the pre-salt bump on onefundamental point: there is a skilled workforce to meet all this demand.The only temporary solution is to bring foreign professionals to work here.Engineers from around the world are offering to cross the Atlantic and up forlower wages, have jobs in brazilian lands.Figures from the Ministry of Labor show that the importation of "talent" isgrowing by leaps and bounds. In 2008, 2,520 engineers called for a work visain Brazil. A year later the figure was 3,226 and in 2010, 4256, an increase of68.8% in just two years.(...)While the Brazilian universities make up about 55.000 engineers a year, themarket needs 80 000 new professionals annually. Worse, 32.000 trainees inthe area would go to the financial market. Just as a comparison, China hasformed around 400.000 engineers a year, India and Korea 280.000, 80.000.(...)
