The MTur works are preferably carried out in cities that appear on the Brazilian Tourism Map, a tool of the Tourism Regionalization Program (PRT) that guides the application of public resources in destinations that adopt tourism as an investment strategy and an alternative for economic return . 

Even in the midst of the pandemic, the Ministry of Tourism continues to work on preparing national attractions to better serve tourists in the process of resuming activities across the country. With a total investment of R$ 98 million, Pasta accounts for the delivery of 126 tourist infrastructure works financially supported by Pasta throughout the country in March and April this year. The projects include initiatives such as the renovation of public squares, parks, shorelines and asphalt paving, among others.

The Minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado Neto, highlights the federal government's commitment to completing works that contribute to the adequate supply of tourist attractions in the country. “We are an itinerant government and we have traveled all over the country to deliver some works that, for a long time, represented true monuments to neglect in past administrations. Under the command of President Bolsonaro, we are continuing to work on improving our various attractions in order to guarantee the best possible structure for the reception of visitors throughout Brazil”, comments the minister.

The largest contributions, of R$ 61,3 million, occurred in the Northeast Region, where 57 works were completed. One of them was the expansion and modernization of the Convention Center in Taboleiro Grande (RN), a city that hosts natural attributes such as the Caatinga. The project received R$ 195, reinforcing the municipality's capacity to host events in an appropriate location, equipped with air conditioning, an auditorium and space for exhibitions.

The Midwest received R$ 10,3 million, which allowed the delivery of 14 works. The interventions included actions such as the construction of public squares, the revitalization of parks, asphalt paving, the implementation of parks and the acquisition of equipment for convention and event centers.

The North Region, in turn, received another R$ 10,3 million from the MTur, which enabled the completion of 10 projects. Highlight for the urbanization of the Orla da Vila Arigó de Santarém (PA), which received R$ 1,9 million and now offers LED lighting, a grassy area and pavement, among other structures. The municipality, with fresh water beaches and waterfalls, is one of the gateways to the district of Alter do Chão, known as the 'Brazilian Caribbean'.

The Southeast had investments of R$ 8,8 million, which allowed the delivery of 20 works. One of them was the expansion of the Votuporanga (SP) Events Center, which received R$975 from the MTur and gained concrete floors, pavements and restrooms, among other interventions. Located 520 kilometers from the capital of São Paulo, the city, bathed by rivers and streams, boasts attractions such as the Nossa Senhora Aparecida Cathedral.

The South Region, in turn, was the destination of R$7,2 million of investments, with which 26 works were completed. The relationship encompasses the construction of the Vila São João Park in Irati (PR), which received R$493. The city, whose population mixes Polish and Ukrainian descendants, brings together tourist attractions such as the monument's gazebo in honor of Nossa Senhora das Graças, one of the most visited in the city.

The MTur works are preferably carried out in cities that appear on the Brazilian Tourism Map, a tool of the Tourism Regionalization Program (PRT) that guides the application of public resources in destinations that adopt tourism as an investment strategy and an alternative for economic return . The funds come from the body's own budget and from parliamentary amendments presented to the Mtur.
