Cachoeiro de Itapemirim is one of the 100 most promising Brazilian cities to do business, according to a survey recently released by Exame magazine, the Abril publisher. It is the first time that the municipality is in the ranking, elaborated annually by the consultancy Urban Systems since 2014.
For the elaboration of the ranking, which covers cities with more than 100 thousand inhabitants, 42 indicators were analyzed in four fronts: human capital, social development, economic development and infrastructure. Among the areas with indices evaluated are economy, sociodemography, health, sanitation, transportation, fiscal management and security.
Cachoeiro reached the 63rd overall position and had better performance in the infrastructure category, where he appears in 21st position. Only two other Capixaba cities are in the ranking (Vitória and Colatina).
“It’s a very important result. The presence in the ranking guarantees an unprecedented visibility to the potential of the municipality in the national scenario. As municipal management, we work to make Cachoeiro a city that is increasingly capable of attracting investors and where it is easy to undertake. The investments we will make in education, health, sanitation, infrastructure and other areas, together with measures to encourage the opening of companies, will contribute much in this direction and improve our economic and social indicators. I believe that, consequently, we will advance in the next rankings “, evaluates the mayor Victor Coelho.
The mayor emphasizes that the municipality also does its part by giving priority to an efficient fiscal management, seeking to improve its revenue and reduce the level of indebtedness. “In parallel, we are working to make progress in reducing bureaucracy, in order to facilitate the life of those who undertake or want to undertake, in addition to increasing tax incentives to attract private investment,” he says.
He also cites the actions of the city government with a focus on creating new businesses and opportunities, such as support for formalizing and strengthening small businesses and exchanges with other countries to present Cachoeiro as an investment option.
“Another key tool in this context is the municipal airport. That is why we are mobilized to make commercial flights feasible and to make investments in the expansion and modernization provided for in the Regional Aviation Program of the federal government, “he adds.
