Brazil’s security ministry has predicted a major increase in the number of highways, railways and airports behind the $ 50bn by bringing the deal to fruition by the end of next year.
“Brazil will be a great building site,” Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas told the Financial Times.
“With the proposed plan, by the end of 2022, $ 50bn will have already been allocated for the sale of airports, ports, highways and railways. In other words, it is equivalent to more than 30 years of state employment budget,” he said.
Sales will be the most visible place for Treasures in Brazil, which even before the plague lasted for many years has been plagued by anemia, high debt, and high unemployment rates. The largest country in Latin America is also plagued by construction problems, especially the unprofitable roads that raise the price of cars and the lack of clean jobs for the millions of poor people in Brazil.
The success of the permissive model – in which companies and investors want to invest and work longer – will also strengthen the economy of the government and finance minister Paulo Guedes, who wants to reduce the burden of a full-fledged country.
During a race week that went on sale last month, investors poured in about $ 10bn in a number of items, including 22 airports, five ports, an east-west railway and agricultural inland and several roads. The French airport team Vinci won seven of the 22 airports, while Brazilian companies received the remaining permits.
By the end of next year, the government wants to have more trade opportunities for 100 items.
For Freitas and independent experts, much of the success in the market has been due to the improvement of Brazilian law and confidence in the law.
“Brazil has the potential to continue attracting immigrants. The country is doing something to attract them – to create better projects, to disseminate information in advance in foreign languages, to increase the level of security in the workplace and to coordinate the negotiations, “said Rafael Vanzella, a construction lawyer at Machado Meyer Advogados.
“We have seen a change, and every day a process of expansion is taking place. Brazil has grown to a very important level.”
De Freitas added that Brazil’s financial commitment – a recent call for Prime Minister Guedes – has made the economy more open to the public.
A well-trained engineer who began working on humanitarian projects more than a decade ago, de Freitas said Brazil is facing an “urgent task” to change its course and stop itself from severely damaging traffic.
“Currently, the railway is only one of the distribution areas, while the road sector represents 65%. The government’s goal is to increase the participation of railways to 35% of all goods carried by 2035,” he said. is working on the construction of a link between the agricultural and tributaries of the Amazonian rivers.
“Just changing the railways is said to be reducing to 1m tons of Co2 from the Amazon rainforest each year.”
The goal of the railway has made the Freitas popular in Brazil’s agricultural districts and some say they may have strong political ambitions – an idea they reject.
However, he is angry with environmentalists, who say they have not been consulted on the many construction projects taking place across the country.
“The government speaks directly to business, but does not negotiate with government agencies,” said Tatiana Oliveira from the Institute of Socioeconomic Study.
“There is a plan to view the environment as an obstacle to the country’s development and development. Nature and communities have been neglected. ”
