National Secretariat team evaluates Port of Paranaguá

Paranaguá is the first Brazilian port visited by the new team of the National Secretariat of Ports (SNP), an agency linked to the Ministry of Infrastructure, responsible for the management of the country’s maritime complexes. Secretary Diogo Piloni was in Paraná on Thursday (7) to know the physical structure and planning of works and actions for the coming years.

According to the Secretary of Infrastructure and Logistics of Paraná, Sandro Alex, the visit is important for the process of delegation of powers, since the State Government last month filed a request for the ministry to give greater autonomy to local management and decentralize some assignments.

“Our intention is to receive the announcement of delegation to Paranaguá in the first half of this year, proving the high technical level of the administration of Paraná,” ​​said the state secretary.

“The request from Paraná is being evaluated, but it is aligned with our idea of ​​decentralization of power and autonomy in management. Port administrations are closer to the problems and the specific needs of each location, as well as having close contact with potential investors, “explained Piloni.

The national secretary of Ports added that the Paraná terminal is a national highlight and recognized as an example of good management. “We are convinced that the new administration will contribute a lot to keep the Ports of Paraná at the forefront.”

The possibility of delegation considers Decree 574, published on December 26, 2018, by the former Ministry of Transport. The Port Authority Management Index (IGAP) measures 15 different indicators of performance, which can be used to attest to the management capacity of the ports. These are financial, accounting, administrative transparency, tax and labor regularity indicators, as well as maintenance of waterway accesses.

According to the national secretary, on a scale of up to ten, a mark above 6 points can give the administrations the right to draw up calls for tenders, to carry out bidding for the leasing of terminals and to supervise the execution of contracts. A grade above 8 would also allow for the economic rebalancing of contracts, negotiate early extensions through new investments and resolve on the expansion of the leased area. The expectation is to receive a score above 9.5 points.

PARTNERSHIP – According to the director of Ports of Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia, the relationship with the Federal Government should be marked by trust and joint work. “I know the team of the National Secretariat of Ports well and I am convinced that we can work together to generate growth for the entire Brazilian productive sector,” he said.

Garcia pointed out that the Ports of Paraná have a strategic geographical location and offer the best business solutions for the national and international markets.

LEASES – The group also discussed the leasing program for two areas in the Port of Paranaguá, one for general cargo handling, mainly pulp and paper, and another for ro-ro cargo (vehicles). The announcement is due in March.

“These areas were offered last year and now some terms have been revised by the Ministry of Infrastructure. We also talked about the planning for 2019 and possible areas that will have to be tendered, “explained the director-president of Ports of Paraná.
