SINGAPORE--The local government and Brazil have inked an agreement under which the city-state will share its expertise in seaport management, and help develop ICT systems and policies to boost cargo and other related activities in the South American country.

The Technical Assistance Agreement was signed Tuesday between Singapore's IDA International and Secretaria de Portos (SEP), the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) entity announced in a statement. IDA International seeks to export the Asian country's e-government expertise to administrations globally.

Under the agreement, both parties would collaborate on projects that support Brazil's cabotage activities and in turn enhance the country's global competitiveness. Originally a maritime term, cabotage refers to the transportation of goods or passengers by sea within a country.

IDA International said it would study the feasibility of cargo transportation between ports or cities within Brazil, and recommend policies as well as develop suitable systems for a paperless cabotage model.

Work on the project is expected to kick off by year-end.
