Another important aspect of Ceará Veloz is related to the intervention patterns of the state government, especially in relation to structural changes in the tax incentives system and in the construction of an environment for attracting strategic businesses for the development of the state.

Among them are the adherence of public policies for economic development to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, with emphasis on Social and Environmental aspects; the improvement of the Business Environment, prioritizing reducing bureaucracy in the processes for Permits, licenses and other documents for the installation and operation of production units; the establishment of a Competitive and Sustainable State in support of infrastructure and intermodal logistics; the economic incentive to production chains that leverage development; advances in the bases of Science and Innovation for the digital transformation of the market, with support for the development of scientific research and acquisition of technologies; and the fostering of financing and investment partnerships that leverage the promotion and attraction of productive investments for the State and the Market, among others.
