Brazil set to launch stage three of Accelerated Growth Programme

Brazil is making preparations to launch the third phase of its Accelerated Growth Programme (PAC 3), according to O Globo.  Launched in 2007 by former-President Lula (pictured above) and continued by his successor, Dilma Rousseff, the first two phases of the programme have so far seen almost 1.3 trillion reais (US$540 billion) spent by government on improving the country’s infrastructure.
