According to the bank, the industrial and infrastructure sectors registered great expansion in financing both in the last 12 months and in the interval from January to October this year.

    The infrastructure area answers to 40% of all disbursements in the last 12 months, or 35 billion reais (US$ 15 billion). The main investment was made in logistics and energy sectors. In the same period, industry received 34.5 billion reais (US$ 14.8 billion), almost the same participation. According to the BNDES, this result reflects the good performance of the textile and garment sectors, mining and food and beverage.

In the third quarter there was an increase of 40% in requests made to the BNDES when compared to the same period in 2007.

    The bank said that it has conditions to maintain its support to projects in development and to expand financing. "The BNDES may act in anticyclic manner in the concession of credit to national companies," according to a press statement by the organization.

    "Despite a worsening of the international crisis and reduction of liquidity, the BNDES should play an important part in sustaining investment in the economy," adds the statement.

    In the period of 12 months ending in July 2008, disbursements by the bank answered to 14% of bulk formation of fixed capital in the Brazilian economy, that is, of direct investment.

      But…but……
      this is a proof that Brazil SUBSISIZES nearly ALL Industrial sectors, including agriculture !
      And subsidizes GROW at a very fast pace !
      the Us$ 37 billion is the ADDITIONAL AMOUNT……NOT THE TOTAL AMOUNT !

      Then why criticize the developed nations subsidizing ONLY their Agriculture ?

      the answer is very simple : Cheaters always cheat, liars always lie and hiders always hide ! And and and….they always shoot in their own foot !

      End results…with proofs ?
      Just as simple : loans for cars at 30 %, 50 % for consumers goods and around 200 % for overdrafts ! Last but not least…..mortgages rates at 13-15 % in an inflationary environment of around 5 % !!!!!!!

      for Brazil…HIP HIP HURRAH, HIP HIP HURRAH !

      YOU CANT HAVE IT ALL…BY COMMON SENSE !!!!!
      A great self destructive economic model….in my secular view !
      Similar to when your “security experts” found very clever and secure to put fuel reserves tanks…at the end of the landing strip
      at the Congonhas airport. It was an accident waiting to happen. But no one could have predicted the day !
