Recently, the government made an interesting announcement. The announcement highlighted the concessions the government intends to make in association with National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES).
The concessions will improve overall sanitation by improving:
Ultimately, this would lead to reduced waste levels.
In Brazil, public utilities provide 90% of basic sanitation services. Out of these, state organizations are responsible for serving around 70% of the population. The concessions prove that public and private entities are capable of complementing each other’s services.
In Brazil, basic sanitation improves massively when the government collaborates with other companies. The experience that the government brings on board is not only great but also important.
According to the announcement mentioned above, BNDES is now free to customize action plans based on each individual state. Felipe Montoro Jens says that the concessions will prevent wastages; hence, presenting more financial benefits to Brazilians.
Without private enterprises, which have more resources, it would be impossible for the government to prevent water wastage alone. However, the concessions will not bear much fruit where adhering to clear goals is not kept while drafting contracts.
Felipe Montoro Jens, who provides more insights on the government concessions, has a lot of experience. He has worked in Brazil, Singapore, and the United Kingdom for various private organizations. Some of the companies he has worked for include:
- a) Halliburton Company in the US
- b) Vallourec SA
- c) Braskem SA in Brazil
- d) JSL SA in Brazil
- e) Marfrig Global Foods SA in Brazil
- f) CTC Centro de Tecnologia Canavieira in Brazil
Currently, Felipe Montoro Jens serves on the boards of directors of several companies and organizations in Brazil and abroad. His expertise in basic sanitation and finances is not in doubt; hence, his much-sought after views on these government concessions.
