Paraíba pushing to speed up PAC projects (Brazil)
2011-04-27
Brazil's federal and Paraíba state governments are discussing projects under the country's growth acceleration plan (PAC) aimed at improving transportation logistics in the northeastern state.

 

Ricardo Barbosa, executive secretary of Paraíba's PAC projects, met with federal representatives this week to discuss five main development projects, according to a state government release.

 

Plans include building a dry port in the city of Campina Grande, and an export processing zone in Santa Rita, in the metropolitan area surrounding state capital João Pessoa.

 

Also presented was work related to the multi-state Transnordestina railroad project, budgeted at 5.42bn reais (US$3.47bn), and work to expand the Cabedelo port, just northeast of the city of the same name.

 

Finally, Paraíba is also requesting 210mn reais for work related to the São Francisco river diversion project, which aims to supply water to Ceará, Pernambuco, Paraíba and Rio Grande do Norte states.
