naval sector in the Amazon

The naval sector in Amazonas does not feel tickled, it even seems that the state does not exist in Brazil

While the rest of the country is shrouded in a smokescreen in the sector, as you can see in the article where Shipbuilding industry has already laid off 50,000, O amazon stands out among the others because it remains stable in the region. Union of the Shipbuilding Industry of Amazonas (Sindnaval) released satisfactory data and statistics that surprised Brazil. Today, 6,500 direct opportunities remain in the locality because there, in Amazonas, the naval industry does not depend only on Petrobras to drive the economy.

With a large portfolio of services outside the oil sector, the main orders that the naval hub of Amazonas receives are for:

  • Steel export to China and other countries
  • Soybean production and export
  • Manufacture of vessels for the transport of passengers

The workforce is also stable. This is because there is a remarkable balance between employability and layoffs, which range from around 5% to 8%. Matheus Araújo, president of Sinaval, said that the North Region leads the sector there. Soon after, fifteen more states followed suit, taking as an example Bahia and Maranhão, which always order vessels from Manaus.

Matheus exclaimed that this will serve as a lesson for the rest of the country, and that we cannot have just one majority customer to move the sector's economy. Taking as an example the South and Southeast region of the country, which is totally dependent on Petrobras, which literally extinguished more than 30 thousand jobs in shipyards, most of which are in Rio Grande, followed by Rio de Janeiro, with about 28 thousand workers laid off.

Did we learn the lesson?

Taking the Amazon as an example to be followed, Brazil needs clarification that the naval and offshore industry are not the only ones with the potential to make the public and economic machine spin. We are a country with energy, water and agricultural resources that are different from other regions of the world. Do the top hats upstairs know this?
