LOS ANGELES , February 20, 2012 () – According to Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, Brazilian port authorities are planning a new grains port in the Amazon region, Reuters reported Feb. 18.

According to the news article, the proposed 18 million tonne-a-year port would be built near Belem — the Amazon region’s largest city — and designed to surpass the 16.8 million tonnes grains capacity of the Port of Santos and the 14.8 million tonnes capacity of the Port of Paranagua.
