Brazilian Ministries support TranspoQuip Latin America

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – The Minister Pedro Britto do Nascimento and the deputy Secretary Dr. José Roberto Serra, have confirmed their presence at the official opening of the transportation infrastructure conference and exhibition.

TranspoQuip Latin America, an international transportation infrastructure conference and exposition, has received the support of a large number of trade, governmental and private entities. Amongst them, the Ministry of Cities and the Special Port Secretariat, whose Secretary, Minister Pedro Britto do Nascimento, has agreed to participate in the opening of the event. The Deputy Secretary of the Secretary of the Special Secretariat of Ports, Mr. José Roberto Sierra, will deliver a lecture during the event’s official opening.

Brazil’s transportation sector is currently in the spotlight and the Brazilian government is making significant investments to modernize all transportation modalities as part of it’s Growth Acceleration Program (Programa de Aceleração do Cresimento).

The Ministry of Transportation has also confirmed co-operation and support for the event. According to Edison de Oliveira Vianna Jr., from the Ministry of Transportation, this subject is crucial for the continuity of Brazil’s economic and social growth. “An event such as TranspoQuip gains relevance by bringing together technology solutions from several infrastructure segments, from Brazil and abroad, so that we have more alternatives, can fine-tune the investments amongst the various sectors, and by providing a platform for discussions on current issues.

The exposition will bring together some 250 global and Brazilian suppliers of equipment, software and services for highways, ports, airports, railways and urban transportation systems. In parallel to the exhibition, conferences and seminars will be held to discuss the management, security, user-comfort and other modality-specific issues. The seminars will be led by representatives from the government, associations and corporate entities.

According to Sebas Van den Ende, president of Real Alliance, organizer of the event, this support demonstrates the importance of the investments in infrastructure to support the country’s expected growth for the coming years. “Latin America is experiencing a moment of economic stability. There will be an increasing need to invest in the transportation sector”.

TranspoQuip Latin America, which will be held at the Expo Center Norte, in São Paulo, from September 9 to 11 of 2008, also has the institutional support of ABEPH [Brazilian Association of Port and Waterway Companies]; ABETRANS [Brazilian Association of Companies in the Traffic Sector]; ABCR [Brazilian Association of Highway Concessionaires]; ABNT [Brazilian Association of Technical Standards]; ABPv [Brazilian Pavement Association]; ABRAMET [Brazilian Association of Traffic Medicine]; ABTP [Brazilian Association of Port Terminals]; ANEOR [National Association of Road Maintenance Companies]; ANTAQ [National Agency of Waterway Transportation]; ANTF [National Association of Railway Transporters]; ANTP [National Association of Public Transportation]; ANTT [National Agency of Land Transportation]; CNT [National Transportation Confederation]; Denatran [National Traffic Department]; DNIT [National Department of Transportation Infrastructure]; Infraero [Brazilian Airport Infrastructure Company]; ITS Brasil [Intelligent Transportation Systems]; NTU [National Association of Companies in Urban Transportation]; Porto de Santos – [Port of Santos]; SINAENCO [National Union of Architecture and Engineering Companies]; SINICESP [Union of the Heavy Construction Industry of São Paulo] and SNTF [National Union of Railway Transporters].
