Abstract

Since 1964 the Brazilian regime has been trying to integrate the Amazon region more into the national economy and society. This article deals with the policy for the integration of the Amazon region since 1974. In that year the colonisation programme was reformulated. Priority is given now to the stimulation of modern, large scale mining, livestock, agricultural and forestry projects, in which Brazilian and foreign companies will have to play an important role. It is far from being a strongly socially inspired development policy. The government policy has mainly favoured elites and companies from the Southeast and from abroad. The continuation of such a development policy will probably only lead to a further spatial expansion of structures and processes that characterize the Brazilian situation of underdevelopment. (AGD).
