Felipe Montoro Jens is a well-known businessman and infrastructure expert in Brazil. He is contracted by the government of Brazil as a consultant, overseeing several projects that are under the supervision of the Program of Partnerships and Investments, or PPI for short. One of his recent projects would be monitoring the auction conducted by the government to award several projects to private corporations. The auction took place in August, and 57 projects are slated to be given to private companies. The total amount of investment by the government is around the US $1.32 billion, and they are hoping for the projects to be finished before it hits the deadline.
Out of the 57 projects given to the private sector, more than half would commence in the second quarter of 2018. These include airports and other infrastructure projects across Brazil. It is also reported that several facilities owned by the government will be sold to private corporations, for them to manage. Felipe Montoro Jens agreed that the plan of the state to award several projects to the private sector would bring better results to the infrastructure network of the country. Other projects are scheduled to start in the latter part of 2018, and Felipe Montoro Jens will once again seat with several people from the government looking for solutions on how it will be awarded to the most deserving private company.
Some people are entirely against the PPI program of the government, but Felipe Montoro Jens explained to them that for a developing nation like Brazil, the PPI brings in a lot of help. In the past, Felipe Montoro Jens is instrumental in building airports, seaports, lighting, roads, and bridges all throughout the country. He is present at all hearing, and he has seen what the private corporations are offering the government to get the deal. With PPI, the government gets to choose which private company is willing to do the project for the lowest price with the best quality.
