Initiatives to attract new companies, water management and more investments in infrastructure are among the demands of Espírito Santo municipalities to continue developing. The points were raised by managers and entities representing different sectors in meetings promoted by the State government and the NGO Espírito Santo em Ação to prepare the ES 500 Anos long-term development plan.

Workshops have already been held in the Central South microregions, in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim; Caparaó, in Alegre; Northwest, in São Mateus; Rio Doce, in Aracruz; and again Northwest, in Nova Venécia. On Thursday (4), the host of the meeting will be the Central-West microregion, in Colatina.

The CEO of ES em Ação, Nailson Dalla Bernadina, highlights that the meetings discuss the potential, as well as the objectives and challenges of each micro-region of the State.

“The meetings aim to collect input and validate the theses about some verticals in each region, giving the opportunity for a greater number of people and entities to participate, to build a work plan that all meetings feel part of” , points out Nailson.

The expectation is that, as a result, the State will become more competitive, with improvements in the business environment and an increase in quality of life.

The Secretary of State for Economy and Planning, Álvaro Duboc, declared that the balance has been positive, since the meetings make it possible to have a more complete view of the particularities of each demand.

“In the Central-South Region, the discussion of economic development and even environmental development focused a lot on the need for an effort to balance the attraction of investments and new companies, compared to the North-Northwest region, due to the benefits that exist for the municipalities that make up the Sudene region. In Caparaó, it is a discussion very focused on environmental issues and tourism development”, he explains.

In the Northeast microregion, water management strategies, as well as infrastructure, mobility and access to healthcare were on the agenda.

“With regard to public policies, such as health, education and public security, the discussions are those within what is already contracted and what is part of the State’s strategic development plans. We talk a little about what the State has been doing, but always looking at where we want to get to by 2035, when Espírito Santo completes 500 years of colonization. Not us as a government, because several administrations will pass through here until then, but the State as a whole, society”, highlights Duboc.

ES 500 Years Development Plan

Announced in December, the ES 500 Years Development Plan will be built with the participation of state and municipal governments, other public authorities, federations, the productive sector, academia, the third sector, organized civil society and other representative organizations, in regional workshops and thematic seminars and with attention to the particularities of each of the ten micro-regions of Espírito Santo.

The document will also aggregate diagnoses produced by different institutions and public authorities, in addition to revisiting goals and indicators established by the currently existing long-term development plan, ES 2030. To this end, the Jones dos Santos Neves Institute (IJSN) carried out a situational analysis of ES 2030. The study highlighted the scenario found when the plan was drawn up, the limiting or driving factors, in addition to the advances, challenges overcome and new challenges mapped.
