The factories belong to Dell, Siemens and EMS. According to information disclosed by the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, together, the three factories are going to invest US$ 380 million.

The three companies are in the technology area. The Brazilian computer market reached 1.43 million in machinery sold in the first quarter of 2006, according to technology consultancy IDC.

The Brazilian government's Computer for All program has also been providing incentives to the sector. It makes available special lines of credit and also grants tax breaks on desktop computers costing up to 2,500 Brazilian reais (US$ 1,250) and notebooks up to 3,000 Brazilian reais (US$ 1,500).

Last year there was an increase of 22% in microcomputer maker revenues. Sales of desktop computers rose 41% and of notebooks rose 113%, according to the Brazilian Electrical and Electronics Industry Association (Abinee).

Higher Revenues

A study by the Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service (Sebrae) shows that real revenues of small businesses in the state of São Paulo rose 1.3% in the first quarter of this year when compared to last year.

The study shows that revenues of micro and small companies from São Paulo reached 60 billion Brazilian reais (US$ 30 billion). In the comparison between March and February of 2007, revenues rose 7.6%. In March, average revenues of micro and small companies were 15,300 reais (US$ 7,650).

Industry and trade were the sectors that answered to the lion's share of growth. The Sebrae study, called Conjectural Indices, is promoted monthly with the collaboration of the Sebrae Foundation, and covers 2,700 micro and small companies in the state of São Paulo, in the sectors of trade, transformation industry and services.
