Cachoeira Paulista, a small town in the interior of Sao Paulo state, Brazil, with only 27,000 inhabitants, is celebrating the arrival of its first industry. A manufacturer of glass – whose name is kept a secret – will spend BRL 30 million to build a factory there and add 100 direct jobs to the city employment opportunities. The company chose Cachoeira Paulista thanks to a policy of fiscal and infrastructure incentives adopted by the city“s current public administration. The strategy, a common practice in the big cities to attract investments, is the new arm of places even as small as Cachoeira Paulista to ferment socio-economic development and combat unemployment.
