Felipe Montoro Jens a leading Finance and Infrastructure Development Expert

Brazil has had a cordial relationship with the state for a very long time. Previously the state did most of the infrastructural developments, and by the 1980s Brazil faced a debt crisis forcing it to involve the private sector in matters development. According to the National Confederation of industry, the only way Brazil could achieve modernization was through state and private partnership.

According to Felipe Montoro, Jens Brazil began discussing privatization matters with key focus on infrastructural development in the 19th century. By the time Brazil reached the 80s much growth had already been witnessed including state-owned businesses. In 1990 the National Privatization Program was established, and privatization became a standardized economic reform platform that was suggested by Brazil government. In the late 90s concessions laws were passed and as a result certain industries were specifically selected for privatization and they include transport, electricity,sanitation and telecommunication among others. In 2014 the Public-Private Partnership Act (PPPs) was passed, and this saw the privatization of the telecommunications industry.

However, since this was something that has never happened before in Brazil a regulatory agency was of importance for the ultimate success of the privatization program as it would provide check and balances. In 2008 the General Concession plan was established, and in 2011 a plan to universalize the Fixed Telephone Service was established by the government. State and Private partnership in the last 20 years have culminated in exciting sustainable development in Brazil.
