After decades of under-investment, the infrastructure in Brazil is finally being effectively expanded and developed, thus, creating an extremely optimistic scenario for private investments.

Brazil is currently modernizing the entire range of its transportation matrix as such structure is supposed to sustain the country's moment as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. The economic imperatives of improving efficiency, lowering costs and attracting private-sector investment entail supplying and maintaining an adequate internal infrastructure.

In order to provide useful tools to anyone in contact for the first time with the "infrastructure world" in Brazil, please find attached a study illustrating, in separate chapters, four relevant segments of the Brazilian transport sector: airports, ports, railways and roads. For each of them, we present the (i) applicable legal rules, (ii) main players involved and (iii) existing or ongoing projects. By portraying these three perspectives, we intend to inform and substantiate where investments are needed the most and how investors could be better rewarded by their initiatives.

Today, we are pleased to present the airport sector. Brazil still lacks an adequate and well-developed airport infrastructure, and, for this reason, highly profitable projects are being carried out with the purpose of cutting logistics costs and inefficient patterns of both interregional and international trade. The country's national airport infrastructure is developing in an adequate and sustainable manner, albeit it is looking for investments forthwith, in order to resume modernization after the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
