Relationship with the community, whose purpose is to promote community awareness of the Bunge enterprise in the region and also help the enterprise become part of the community.
Strengthening of public administration, aiming to promote cooperation with the municipalities of Pedro Afonso, Tupirama and Bom Jesus do Tocantins for development of the territory with respect to infrastructure, management of municipal councils and training for management of public tax and budget policies.
