Abstract

An interesting opportunity exists to discuss argibusiness projects to be implemented in poor regions. This chapter presents a method that suggests four fundamental dimensions to be inserted in agribusiness projects and to be used by governments and development agencies for attracting the right investments. The first dimension is related to the technical and economical viability; the second one is related to organizational aspects, the players' ability to efficiently coordinate their transactions. The third one relates to business competitiveness and the fourth dimension is environment sustainability. Emblematic cases leading to the proposed method are presented. Finally, results from implementing the method through project done by PENSA (Agribusiness Intelligence Center) together with CODEVASF (Sao Francisco and Parnaiba Rivers Valleys Development Agency) are presented and discussed.

Keywords: Emerging Markets, Growth, Business Practices, International Business, International Marketing, Developing Country, Transitional Economies
