Brazilian ports are the gateways to more than 80% of the goods imported and exported by the country. Investing in the port sector is an on-going priority in Brazil, which is export-dependent for much of its economic growth. But the country's ports are underdeveloped by global standards, which has led to bottlenecks and inefficiencies and the sector still suffers from lack of a clear regulation that encourages private investment, although several corporations active in Brazil already own and manage terminals in the country. Over 200 projects have been identified to bring the country's port sector up to standard, through both Greenfield port projects and through the upgrading of existing facilities.
