  5. 5. Brazil – Predicted to have greater GDP then current richest countries (G7) by 2050 (according to 2001 Goldman Sachs report) Curitiba offers the best quality of life and holds the title of Model city in Brazil, the largest South American country in size, economy and population, the fifth largest country in the world, with 180 million people, including 35 million consumers and one of the most desired markets and potential growth economies in the world. Brazil is rich in resources and manpower, a well-known exporter of sugar, coffee, iron ore, beef, chicken, soybeans and footwear, could also become a key supplier of crude to the U.S. as production in Mexico and Venezuela decline. Over 90% of Brazilian exports correspond to items produced by large companies, several products in the basic stage to be transformed somewhere else in the world. 2/9
  6. 6. Curitiba – Brazil’s model city and best entry access to Mercosul Countries (Argentina / Brazil / Paraguay /Uruguay) Curitiba is located in the state of Paraná, south region of Brazil. One of the preferred places of European immigrants- mainly Germans, Italians, Poles and Ukrainians, that arrived in Brazil since the XIX century. Its economy is based on trade, the provision of services and processing industries, scattered across Curitiba's City and Industrial Park, a dedicated area for industries since 1970 with 43 million square meters, with several large industries like ExxonMobil, Healthy, Volvo, Kraft Foods, Siemens, Cocelpa, Furukawa, Bayone, Hettich, Denso, Bosch, Brafer, Placas do Parana, CNH, Hass, Becton Dickinson, Decorprint, Petroleo Brasileiro, Propex, and several others. 3/9
  7. 7. Curitiba – Quality Public Transportation system shared with several cities including New York In addition, the city has one of Brazil's best public transport systems, having sold and exported several of its schemes, such as the Integrated System to other cities, including New York. About 1,100 buses make 12,500 trips per day, serving 1.3 million passengers. Curitiba’s buses are privately-owned by ten companies, managed by a quasi-public company. Bus companies receive no subsidies; instead all mass transit money collected goes to a fund and companies are paid on a distance travelled basis. Curitiba’s transportation system also favors the environment; the city has the second highest per capita car ownership rate in Brazil (one car for every three people) but is 30 percent below in gasoline use per capita among eight comparable Brazilian cities due to the effective public transportation. 4/9
  8. 8. Latin America – Brazil - Curitiba Opportunity for Transportation and Logistics Companies Transportation and logistics (movement and storage of goods) is the second biggest industry, after foods industry in Latin America. This industry is far from mature, and is among the high ranked opportunities in Brazil. In 2007 there were 754 million tons that moved through Brazil’s ports system. The country operates 45 ports (35 sea and 10 river ports) 37 or these are administrated by the State. With the recent laws allowing privatization of port terminals and areas, over 7.4 million square meters (145 areas) have been leased, over US$ 3 billion of public / private investment have been made, and between 1993 and 2005 there has been an increase of 73% in tonnage and 277% in containers handled with 65% of cargo handled within 121 private port terminals. Director of ANTAQ (national water transport agency) says that five to ten new ports will be needed by the year of 2023 to support the country’s growing trade. While several projects and terminals are already under development, most of which will have around 50 feet of natural draft the new Growth Accelerating Program (PAC) will be investing 1,140 billion reais (approximately 650 million dollars) by 2010 for dredging. Brazil is prepared to receive the new larger ships in several of it’s ports.. 5/9
