Tebet’s race to close trade relations with Bolivia

The Minister of Planning and Budget, Simone Tebet, has been trying to articulate commercial relations with Bolivia.

Tebet has used the two South American integration routes that directly benefit the neighboring country as a hook.

Tebet’s attempt influences the input sector for fertilizer production. Products such as urea, potassium chloride and NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) produced in Bolivia are of Brazilian interest.

Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Rondônia and Acre will have highways to expand trade and tourism and cultural relations between the two countries.

On Wednesday (31), Tebet spoke with the Minister of Hydrocarbons and Energy of Bolivia, Franklin Ortiz, about the South American integration project.

Initially, the connection will not just be road or waterway routes, but other forms of integration, such as energy and digital connectivity.

“Brazil has the technical capacity and resources to develop production chains in the area of ​​nitrogen. Bolivia has large reserves of natural gas, a fundamental input for the production of nitrogen, as well as minerals used in other types of nutrients. The implementation of the memorandum will be led by a joint working group, composed of representatives from technical areas, who will be responsible for developing a strategic cooperation plan”points out the Ministry of Planning and Budget, in a note.

“Two of the five South American integration routes directly benefit Bolivia and the Brazilian states on the border with the neighboring country”he emphasizes.

The integration

The Brazilian government resumed the plan to unite South America through infrastructure. Brazil presented a plan with 124 projects in 11 border states to neighboring countries.

The project has billion-dollar support from international organizations, such as the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the former Andean Development Corporation (CAF), in addition to BNDES.

All works were included in the Growth Acceleration Program (PAC).

There will be five integration and development routes:

  • Guianas Island Route: fully includes the states of Amapá and Roraima and parts of the territory of Amazonas and Pará, bordering Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela.
  • Manta-Manaus Multimodal Route: covers the entire state of Amazonas and parts of the territories of Roraima, Pará and Amapá, connecting Colombia, Peru and Ecuador by river.
  • Rondon Quadrant Route: formed by the states of Acre and Rondônia, throughout the western portion of Mato Grosso, with connections via Bolivia and Peru.
  • Capricorn Route: from the states of Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraná and Santa Catarina, connected, via multiple routes, to Paraguay, Argentina and Chile.
  • Porto Alegre-Coquimbo route, covering Rio Grande do Sul, integrated with Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.
