Brazilian Government

‘The income gap between the richest and the poorest in Brazil is getting wider. The shanty towns in our large cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo are expanding and their residents lack basic facilities such as electricity and clean water. Our interest on the debt is growing each year and we need to invest in our industries if we are to ever pay back this money. Developing the Amazon can generate some of this necessary investment.’

THE GRAND CARAJAS PLAN

The Grand Carajas Plan is the largest iron ore mine in the world employing over 7,000 people. The ore is very rich in iron, containing 66% metal. The area is estimated to hold enough reserves to carry on mining for the next 400 years.
