DESPITE THE CRISES, THE PRIVATE SECTOR CONTINUES TO INVEST IN THE PORT OF PARANAGUA

The Port of ParanaguŠ contrasts with the national economic
scenario. While investments in Brazil are falling, the private
sector will invest $ 1.1 billion in the ParanŠ port in 2016,
according to the CEO of Administration of ParanaguŠ and
Antonina Ports, Luiz Henrique Dividino. According to him, in
one of the projects planned to expand the export capacity at
the Port are being invested about R $ 300 million. Data
released by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and
Statistics (IBGE) shows that the Gross Fixed Capital
Formation closed the third quarter of 2015 with a decrease of
15% compared to the same period of 2014. The index
represents how much was invested in the country over the
Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and shows a sharp drop in
investments over the past few months. However, Rocha -
one of Port Terminals and Logistics operating in the Port of
ParanaguŠ - just start building their horizontal silos to
operate in the export of bulk materials (soyabean, corn and
pellets) in ParanŠ port. Currently, Rocha operates mainly in
the import of dry bulk and has a bonded warehouse leased
and general cargo at the Port. According to the CEO of
Rocha Terminal, Henrique Jorge Sampaio, the company also
operates the ports of S„o Francisco do Sul, Rio Grande and
Itaqui. However, only in Paranagua is making investments of
this size.
