STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE WEST CENTER/BRAZIL
This article offers an assessment of the Strategic Development Plan for Brazil’s Centre-West (2007-2020), with special focus on the possible territorial impacts in the region caused by actions implemented by the Centre-West’s Development Superintendence up to 2015. As far as methodology is concerned, this study presents a review of the literature which correlates notions of regionalization found in the document under analysis with those acknowledged by Geography and related fields. Furthermore, it brings forth selected secondary data and mappings of transport modes to foster a discussion on the region’s economic integration and development policy.
