Dear readers,

As everyone knows, the broadcast of the most important news of MOTA-ENGIL ENGENHARIA is done through several means of internal dissemination: SINERGIA magazine, ON.ME portal, CORPORATE TV and Mota-Engil Engenharia’s NEWSLETTER.

Although the degrees of penetration and the contents of such means are not homogeneous, a more restrained management of our resources justifies the gather of the dissemination function, so the issue of the NEWSLETTER is now suspended.

For their cooperation in these 73 issues, we’d like to thank the team of Communication and Image, the writers of the articles, coming from multiple areas, branches and affiliates in the several markets where MOTA-ENGIL ENGENHARIA is present, and also all those who have contributed for the continuous improvement of the NEWSLETTER, which was evident over time.

We’d encourage sustained efforts, now focused in enhancing the content of the other 3 means of dissemination.
