Abstract (Translated): 
The metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro has an urban structure "macrocefálica" in which the hinterland remains "the shadow of the metropolis" with other reduced centrality. However, in the recent period, there was the advent of large investment projects in its periphery, notably in the steel, oil and gas, shipbuilding and logistics. So it should ask what the potential that this cycle has to leverage a regional sustained economic growth on the specifics of RMRJ. In particular, it is expected to show that the potential of the current investment cycle is limited in their own dynamic structural weaknesses that are amplified by the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan problems, such as low density of productive periphery of the RMRJ and its severe infrastructure deficiencies.
