By 2020, mining is expected to generate more than 83,000 jobs in Para. The estimate was announced yesterday by the president of the Union of Industries of the State of Pará Minerals (Simineral), José Gomes Junior, during a special session at the Legislative Assembly of Pará (Alepa ), commemorating the State Day of mining. Among the challenges for the sector, which in this same period should generate around US $ 31 billion in investments, are the logistics and tax barriers.
"Every increase in tax burden worries the industry. We are the second link in the production chain and our concern is that these factors may affect the end result is the consumer, "said Jose Fernando.
During the special session, the President of Sinmineral also highlighted advances, such as the internalisation of jobs - he cited, for example, that in the MRN, for example, today, 87% of its contracts are fulfilled by Para - but called attention need for the country's progress in re-discussion of the federal pact, which has penalized the Pará in exports and complete important projects like the North South railway, the waterway of the Araguaia and Tocantins the construction of new ports that can improve the flow of production.
The president of the Parliamentary Front of Mining, Mr Raimundo Santos (PEN), which required the session, stressed the importance of joint efforts to lobby Congress to unlock these guidelines. In particular, the discussion of the new regulatory framework for mining and regulation of Kandir Law. "It has to formalize the names of those who will follow these discussions of these two projects in Brasilia because they are issues that meet all of what we are debating for many years," said Santos.
He said another priority of the Parliamentary Front is to get society to take ownership of these debates. Even as a way to pressure the federal government to complete important projects like the overthrow of Pedral of Lawrence. "Our thought is to involve society in these discussions. If we do not have the verticalization is because they lack logistics solutions. No one will want to invest in steel in Pará if you have no flow assurance, "he said.
The Assistant Secretary of the State Secretariat for Economic Development, Mining and Energy (Sedeme), Maria Amelia Enriquez, also made an overview of the sector and highlighted the growth of activity in the state. According to her, in 2011, 50 municipalities Pará received financial compensation as a result of mining. In 2014, the number jumped to 62 municipalities.
The superintendent of the Sebrae in Pará, Fabrizio Guaglianone also announced investments of US $ 2 million for training of micro and small entrepreneurs operating in the sector. He explained that the courses that will be offered in the municipalities of Parauapebas, Ourilândia, Canaan and Bethlehem will focus not only care, but also access to market more independence of large mining projects. It is expected the production of small entrepreneurs increased by 5% to 15% in coming years
