CARVALHO, Rosa Maria Miranda Armond et al. Study of the relationships of social actors in the forest industrial complex of Minas Gerais. Rev. Árvore [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.2, pp. 359-366. ISSN 0100-6762. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-67622009000200017.
The objective of this study was to understand the interactions among the different social actors involved in the forest industrial complex companies. To work with the data obtained, an adaptation of the Likert scale as a measurement mechanism was used, allowing checking the degree of agreement and the importance attributed by the interviewees in relation to the statements described in the questionnaire. The relation with the government, society, customers, suppliers and competitors is considered important, with the search for information being a widespread practice. Government taxes, the bad quality of the road system and insufficient support were the major obstacles to the development of the productive activity.
