Sit down with a shopkeeper and ask him what he thinks of the dress, and he’ll serve you something hitherto unknown.

For this purpose, he is one of the leaders of Transforma RS, a cooperative center installed at Instituto Caldeira, in Porto Alegre.

Transforma RS believes that the convergence of ideas can contribute to social and economic progress.

Innovation is a matter of survival
Data analysis and information storage for decision-making, technological modernization, credit lines knowledge, workforce training, and competitive market structuring. For Imply CEO, Tironi Paz Ortiz, these are the main challenges facing the industry in Brazil.
He asserts that “in order to survive, an entrepreneur must be in constant evolution.”
Ortiz says technology is creating new cultures. For the entrepreneur, the development of the Internet has forced companies to search for new operations in order to succeed in the market.
Imply will be presented next Wednesday, 25th, as part of Industry Week, as a case of success in internationalizing the business. The company exports hardware and software. However, the company lacks infrastructure and skilled labour.

There are a lot of vacancies and a shortage of technicians
The latest data from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) indicates 12 million unemployed people in the country, which represents an unemployment rate of 11.2%. On the other hand, there are vacancies in several sectors. One of the biggest shortfalls in the market is in information technology. “There are many vacancies, particularly in the development area. But there is a lack of technical qualifications,” says Imply CEO Tyronne Paz Ortiz.
The company works to qualify professionals after employment. Even top developers go through an adaptation process that takes at least six months to produce as required by Imply.
“I think one of the paths is in-company qualification. Another way is to interact more with universities and workforce coaches, as we already do,” Tironi notes. “Universities have developed a lot in Brazil, meaning not to train someone to deposit knowledge in a library, but to apply it to the labor market,” says the entrepreneur.
Other entities, such as Sebrae and Senac, are also outfitting workers according to market requirements. However, since training professionals did not design the needs of the future, there is a void that needs to be filled.

Spaces for recycling
The process that turns raw materials into the final product has lost its place in the Brazilian economy. According to the president of the Association of Industrial Trade (ACI) in Santa Cruz do Sul, Cesar Chinato, in the eighties, the manufacturing industry accounted for 30% of the Brazilian GDP, which means 2.5% of the world’s industrial production. Today, only 11.8% of GDP comes from factories, and about 1.8% of industrial production worldwide.
“We lost the industry’s share in the world,” he says. Cechinato predicts that the industrial share of the upcoming GDP could reach close to 10%. According to him, looking at the value-added tax (VAF), among the ten main tax-collecting companies in Santa Cruz, there are eight industries.
“Santa Cruz do Sul is a prominently industrial city. Both in terms of taxes and in terms of jobs. The fact that Santa Cruz is one of the largest GDPs in the state is primarily due to industry,” he says.
The decline in manufacturing in Brazil is due to two main reasons. “As countries grow economically, participation in the service sector increases, as well as the strength of agribusiness. What is remarkable is how quickly participation is declining, which has never happened in any country on the planet. This is very dangerous,” Chinato analyzes.
As important as food production is to national development, experts say the extractive economy, which exports raw materials, misses the opportunity to add value to natural resources.
Industry Week arrives in 2022 with the goal of drawing attention to the importance of the manufacturing industry and alerting to the urgency of innovation, even in traditional media. In this sense, organizations such as the National Federation of Industries are seeking re-industrial movements in the country.
