Rapid industrialization, beginning with Word War I, has characterized the most
recent phase of Brazilian's economic development. The cities of Sao Paulo, SP, Rio de
Janeiro, RJ, Recife, PE, and, later, Belo Horizonte, MG, Porto Alegre, RS and
Salvador, BA, have become important industrial centers. The steel plant Volta
Redonda, RJ, built in 1946 with technical and financial assistance from the United
States, is among the largest industrial projects in Latin America, and steel production
is rapidly increasing. Brazil also produces a great variety of manufactured goods, of
which textiles are the most important. Other products include all types of machinery,
automobiles, tires and other rubber commodities, aluminum articles, eletric appliances,
and shoes. The value of industrial production is only slightly less than of agricultural
To serve these growing industries, electric production has been greatly increased. It
is estimated that Brazil, with its many vast rivers, has potential of 14,500,000 KW,
although only a fraction of this has yet been developed. The most import hydroelectric
power project is at Paulo Afonso on the São Francisco River.
