Invest in Belem capital of Para – Brazil Investments

Belem is found in the southern part of Brazil, the capital city of Para state and the largest metropolitan city in the state with a population of 2.09 million. Even though most people know about the Amazon, little is known about Belem that marks the entry point for the Brazilian Amazon region and therefore has an important place in the country. The city of Belem is a significant Brazilian tourist destination and has as well earned a high reputation in the world economy with sectors such as rubber production. The city has huge rubber plantations; it makes for an important market for this Agricultural produce leading to the construction of historic markets. For the tourism sector, the Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi is perhaps a major attraction as an Institute of research that was founded in 1866. Tourism is a major revenue earner for the city. Belem has the largest open air market in Brazil selling fish, fresh fruits, ornamental plants, artesanato and grass for tea and banns. The efforts and measures laid out by the Brazilian government towards the development of Belem have been very beneficial to this region. As a hub for business in the Amazon area with the biggest port around, Belem forms an important segment of the Brazil economy. The integration undertaken by the government at the half of the 20th century has paid off with a robust and thriving economy with great infrastructural potential, agribusiness development amongst other sectors. The city has grown into a lively and absorbing city with a unique culture that is from its people. Without a doubt, the region has had a thriving lumbering sector with the port of Belem serving as the main transport root for the timber cargo from the Amazonas. A majority of controversial development programmes costing huge sums of money have been in the Amazonas region. It is also home to the largest development project in the area, the Grande Carajas mining and the Industrial zone. Having the biggest port that rests about 120 kilometers from the Atlantic, this region is rarely affected by the Amazonian dry season. On the overall, the Belem economy thrives on the following sectors of its economy; tourism, Lumbering, financial services, agribusiness, infrastructural projects, property and housing, the creative industries eg film and music, education and training, IT, etc. The minimum wage in Belem is approximately 700 reais, about 215 pounds.
