This paper focus the regional distribution of Minas Gerais' industries, between 1970 and 1994. The industrial employment growth in the various regions of the State is analyzed. This allow us to classify them as: in depression, stagnant, with moderated growth, rapid growth and accelerated growth. The study concludes that the industrial growth in the State was not homogeneous among the regions. Actually, it showed a trend to deepen the regional economic disparities. The industrial investments between 1995 and 2000 confirms the tendency of industrial concentration. This fact reinforce the aglomeration, increasing the economic disparity among Minas Gerais' regions.
