The Federal Government published the first version of the Long-Term Infrastructure Integrated Plan, instituted by Decree n.º 10.526/2020. By integrating sector plans and mapping large-scale projects, it presents long-term perspectives on necessary infrastructure investments.

The Inter-ministerial Committee of Infrastructure Planning (CIP-Infra) at the Office of the Chief of Staff, through Resolution n.º 3/2021, approved the first version of the Long-Term Infrastructure Integrated Plan (Portuguese version available here), instituted by Decree n.º 10.526/2020 (reported in the 17th edition of the Regulatory Report). The plan is designed to integrate several sector plans related to infrastructure under a common framework, as a means to provide a long-term picture of necessary investments and federal government support.

As provided in CIP-Infra Resolution n.º 2/2021, the plan is comprised of long-term large-scale projects from seven sectors: Transports, Telecommunications, Electric Energy, Hydric Resources Infrastructure, Sanitation, Research and Development, and Urban Mobility. According to the Ministry of Economy, the plan mapped 132 long-term large-scale projects currently under implementation with the support of the Federal Government, accounting for BRL 517 billion in total investments.

The Long-Term Infrastructure Integrated Plan is comprised of socioeconomic projections for the 2021-2050 period (chapter 2), the economic infrastructure perspectives for the next 30 years in each sector (chapter 3), the long-term large-scale projects under implementation for the next 10 years (chapter 4), and new estimations of socioeconomic feasibility in each sector (chapter 5).

As to future perspectives, based on the mapped sector plans and projects, the integrated plan projects a level of investments that corresponds to 2.5% of GDP until 2033 under the “reference scenario”, while projecting a necessary 3% of GDP level of investments until 2033 under the “transformation scenario”.

The following sector plans were integrated under the Long-Term Infrastructure Integrated Plan:
