In the past 30 years, a bigger percentage of Brazil’s state has been pulled apart due to all forms of privatizations. The first state dismantling took place towards the end of the 1980s after the start of the privatization process, which was triggered by the external debt crisis. This excerpt will review the privatization process according to Felipe Montoro, a top infrastructure expert in Latin America.
National Confederation of Industry conducted a study that revealed the importance of private companies in the growth of Brazil’s infrastructure sector. Brazil opted for the privatization process as a strategy for meeting the demands required to expand the infrastructure industry.
In the20th century, Brazil was characterized by the presence of many state-owned enterprises. From 1930 to the late 1980s, these enterprises registered an unprecedented growth. In 1990, the growth slowed down due to the commencement of privatization process. Following the inception of the National Privatization Program back in early 1990, the government adopted privatizations as one of its economic reforms. This period saw the privatization of businesses in the petrochemical, aeronautical, and steel industries. In line with the 1995 Concessions Law, the new regime focused on privatizing electricity, telecommunications, sanitation, and transport sectors.
Mr. Felipe Montoro holds senior positions at several leading companies, such as Felipe’s company Participacoes, Concesionaria Interoceanica, Concessionaria Travase Olmos, and Maranon Energia SA. Felipe’s company nominated Mr. Montoro into its governing board as an alternative member. He has held executive positions in the firm’s controlling, corporate, planning, and finance divisions.
Due to his stellar record of driving many companies to success, Mr. Montoro has become one of the Brazil’s highly sought after executives. Many corporations have hired him into their advisory and management boards. For example, he is on the boards of San Antonio Energia SA, Fonte Nova Negocios, and Felipe’s company Agroindustrial SA.
On May 2017, the Brazilian government announced that it would make concessions via a partnership with National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). The water sector warmly received the initiative as well as the president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos.
President of Trata Brasil.
Edison highlighted the fact that 90% of basic sanitation services in Brazil is performed by public power and state organizations serve approximately 70% of the users. He also added that the private initiative’s presence is not a valid reason for excluding the public since both forms of management can work well and complement each other.
BNDES will come up with action plans that are customized for the states to enable the banks to adapt the projects based on the needs of each state. According to Edison, the private sector has more resources and can serve as a significant ally in the task of ensuring that water is not wasted. Advanced technology is also crucial for water management in Brazil to improve investments in the sewage networks.

Sometimes you just have to share the wealth, especially when that wealth comes in the form of the most precious of elements, water. The government in Brazil is learning that sharing the wealth of the work focused on the wealth of water within the nation definitely works as a good deal. It may not feel like it, from the authority’s standpoint. But, in time, when businesses grow and the levels of wasted water go down, there are sure to be true concessions to accompany the contractual and service concessions underway.
These actions are not just happening all willy-nilly style and out of thin air. As a matter fact, they are a longtime coming in regards to the satisfaction and ultimate service rendered to the general public. So, chances are things should be working out just fine.

Felipe Montoro Jens points to the large level of waste that is commonly seen in the water sanitation industry as a major problem that affects the profits and spending of most public water sanitation services; including a greater level of private services in the water sanitation industry should provide better services that will reduce the level of wasted water and improve the quality of sanitation provided.

Brazil is going through a rough crisis since 2015, so, whenever a change is announced to revamp and revitalize something essential for the Brazilian community, it shows progress towards a better future.
Felipe Montoro Jens, a businessman who has been the Executive Officer and Director of many important Brazilian corporations, speaks about the changes that are going to take place in the country regarding basic sanitation and its deficient structure in some localities of extreme poverty.
BNDES, the National Bank of Economic and Social Development, has announced changes that will take place through a program and a partnership with the Brazilian government.
“Trata Brasil,” an institution with a focus on managing the basic sanitation of Brazil, has had its President Edison Carlos talk about the program in a recent interview with the Brazilian news network notícias.Terra. He pointed some of the most important factors of the initiative. He firmly believes that the decision will cause the structural areas and the management of resources to have an easier time providing the best experience for the community in such an essential part of structuring an urban area.
Felipe Montoro Jens adds that the program will also help with the wastage of water that results from an inadequate basic sanitation in these regions.
BNDES will make custom adjustments and plans according to each community and their unique needs and emergencies. This will allow the initiative to quickly cover more areas and spend fewer resources while not failing in delivering the project. Felipe explains that this will directly pay for itself because, by fixing the wastage of water, they will also allow these communities to live better lives and consume less water as a result.
