By the end of the year, new fairs will be held in the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio Grande do Sul, in addition to the Federal District.
“PAI is a great opportunity for the local market to report properties of interest to the government, helping us to be much more efficient in our sales efforts,” said Diogo Mac Cord, Special Secretary for Privatization, Divestment and Investment. markets. According to him, many of these properties are in a state of neglect and the sale to the private sector should facilitate investment and job creation.
