Abstract

The aim of the chapter is to understand and analyze the main challenges faced by the city of Aparecida de Goiânia, state of Goiás, for its economic development, from 2015 to this first quarter of 2018. Also, the authors analyze what strategies are being adopted by local, state, and municipality governments in view of recent corruption scandals in Brazil in very recent years leading to problems such as failure to provide adequate infrastructure, high tax rates, and a slow and heavy bureaucratic system that makes the opening, reform, and closing of companies a slow and difficult process.
