Brazil is one of the most attractive markets for infrastructure in the World today thanks to favourable macroeconomics, a competitive infrastructure sector developing fast and a pipeline with specific projects close to be a reality.
At the macro-economic level: aprox. 4% stable projected GDP growth, an increasing population (close to 200 millions people today), being one of the main recipient of forign direct investment worldwide and a rapidly increasing motorization rate, shape a bright future in the short and long term
Brazil is moving forward in Public Private Partnerships, with a lot of projects in railways, roads and ports. There are local and international players and a stable legal framework allowing an increasing number of projects being tendered. The government Accelerated Growth prgram (PAC) is making progresses despite a slow start. Current expectations are high, with investments of more than US$500 billons planned in the period 2011-14
Opportunities for investment in infrastructure in Brazil exist mainly in roads, railways, aiports, stadiums and energy. The fact that Brazil will host the two premier world sports events, FIFA World Cup 2014 (12 host cities) and Rio Olympic Games 2016 is pushing all this infrastructure development. Brazil is a relevant market for any global player in infrastructure. Are you going to miss it?
