Because the natural development process of the city of Rio de Janeiro driven by major events that will occur in the city in the next years, it has been created an Urban Operation Project, named "Porto Maravilha". This project comes to revitalize the Port Region increasing the tourism attractiveness and creating a dynamic economic area.
