Tocantins, noteworthy as the newest and one of the best-managed Brazilian states, draws immigrants from all over the country by virtue of its flourishing agricultural economy. Unlike its neighbours, the landlocked state has open pastures besides the expected rainforests, and rivers carving oases in the dry terrain. The North-South Railway currently in the works is foreseen to raise the standard of living in Tocantins in the coming years.
The state’s profile was raised when it became the site for the filming of the popular US television series Survivor. The capital is Palmas.
Tocantins has a mix of advantages making it the best place in Brazil to invest, and we will list them for you and discuss them subsequently.
- A new state with the best growth figures of Brasil
- Central location in Brazil with a cargo oriented infrastructure
- Abundancy of water, energy, land and sunshine
- A government that is willing to speed up burocracy and offering tax incentives
Features and opportunities
The particular circumstances in Tocantins lead to various business opportunities. It is important to understand that this state seperated from the state Goias in 1990, because the capital Goiania was too far away and nothing was being done to develop this area. Illustrative to the underdevelopment is the fact that only one asphalt road crossed this area in 1990.
