At the inauguration of the North Rail Network Expansion Project in Rondonópolis (MT) in September 2013, President Dilma noted Brazil was behind in railroad logistics and country coverage compared to many countries in the world that had made heavy investments in the sector since the end of the 18th or early 19th centuries.

Roads continue to represent one of the main Brazilian logistical and tourist means of transport. And they need constant maintenance, modernization and safety improvements, plus the construction of many, many more kilometers to meet the country's growing needs. Since 2007, some 6,100 km of highways were built or duplicated in Brazil. Just through the PAC 2, some 3,000 km were completed. Anther 7,200 km are currently being built, with 2,600 km of duplication and adjustments and 4,600 km of construction and paving.

"Many of the necessary investments are underway in the PAC: highways, railways, waterways, ports, airports ... All Brazilian infrastructure in all regions have received some kind of investment to resolve the bottlenecks (...) We have done things, we still have much to do. Also because our country must discuss, in the case of logistics, a systematic investment plan for logistics that does not run out every year, which goes beyond the years and it becomes a compromise not of government, but rather a commitment of State."

"With the PAC, Brazil resumed strategic long-term planning. We've come to know in detail our main weaknesses in logistical, social and urban infrastructure. And we have been able organize, attach hierarchical importance and give due priority to a set of actions that have turned our country into a huge construction site. And it's important, and I want to make this really clear, that the merits of the PAC can not be attributed only to the government but, rather, to the union of broad efforts of a wide range of sectors of our society around the common goal of sustainable development.
