Logistics infrastructure in the Southeast region

An anlysis of possible paths for a partnership between Brazil and China

In the context of CEBRI’s Infrastructure Working Group, Catavento analyzed the Brazilian logistics infrastructure’s challenges and opportunities, and Brazil-China relationship in the white paper – “Logistics infrastructure in the Southeast region: an analysis of possible paths for a partnership between Brazil and China”. The methodology used to write this white paper was based on desk research analysis; interviews with experts and discussion roundtables.

Based on the inputs and analyses gathered throughout the previous phases, the paper concluded that the infrastructure sector could be boosted by the development of a long-term vision, contributing to the definition of priority projects, with enough guarantees for new investments. At the same time, the promotion of a more integrated and centralized governance can significantly reduce bureaucratic procedures and regulatory complexities, leveraging the private sector participation. All these suggested drivers can foster private and foreign investments with the development of an attractive business environment.

In this sense, there is an opportunity to benefit from the global shift in the Chinese investment orientation. Chinese infrastructure capabilities, as well as its capital availability, represent an opportunity to develop a modern and sustainable infrastructure in Brazil.
