The federal government is offering private companies the opportunity to bid on concessions for many government construction projects in Brazil. Felipe Montoro Jens announced bids for infrastructure projects. Of the 57 project auctions in 22 sectors, more than half will not begin until the second half of 2018. The Program of Partnerships and Investments (PPI) expects positive response to projects involving infrastructure.
One project is for improvement to São Paulo’s Congonhas airport, as well as Infraero selling off their concessions to Brasilia: Confis, Galeão, and Guarulhos in Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo, respectively. Infraero, a public company, holds 49% control over concessions in these three terminals. Visit infomoney.com to learn more.
Another infrastructure project that will be included in the auction is for BR-153 between Anápolis and Aliança. Previously, there was concession by the GalvãoGroup but it has since been revoked. The Ministry of Transport states that there is a schedule for bidding to be held during the last three months of Michel Temer’s term.
Felipe Montoro Jens indicates that another road will be included in private sector auctions. In the end of 2018, a length of BR-364, 800-km, between Comodoro and Porto Velho will be auctioned.
Additional auctions will be held the second half of 2018 involving concessions of port terminals in Belém, Vila do Conde, Paranaguá, and Vitória, as previously scheduled. Read more at frenchtribune.com for more info.
There is no decision for selling some other companies. Mint, Ceasaminas, Casemg, and Docks of Espírito Santo are all to be auctioned, too, but the government has not determined how to proceed with their sale. Though they have not finalized agreements, they do indicate that each will be auctioned at the end of 2018. The sale of Mint, in particular, is due to advanced technology that can be better handled by privatization, though Mint produces money and creates passports.
Felipe Montoro Jens has produced a list of terminals that will be auctioned by the federal government. Included in the list are terminals such as Maceió, João Pessoa, Aracaju, Juazeiro do Norte, Campina Grande, Recife, Várzea Grande, Rondonópolis. The federal government and Felipe Montoro Jens have a complete list of all terminals that will be scheduled for auction.
PPI wishes to improve the relationship between private business and the government through improvement in job creation and private growth in Brazil. The intent is to expand public infrastructure while enhancing private business initiatives.
