Reporting this, Felipe Montoro Jens, Infrastructure Projects expert stated that the infrastructure sector is the most affected representing 517 which is 18.5 % of the total. In this sector, the department of sanitation leads with 447 enterprises interfered with while at the implementation stage. To complete the 517 of the paralyzed works, there are 5 waterways, 5 railways, 6 ports, 8 urban mobility works, 16 airports and 30 highways.
Although they are cheaper and less complex, Felipe Montoro Jens also touched on the interruption of the construction of day-care centers, sports facilities and preschools in the educational units. The survey pointed out that a little percentage of the country’s GDP is channeled to the infrastructure sector.
As a result, this has led to the closure of these operations. The shutdowns end up consuming a lot of resources but do not generate anything in return. The author of the survey notes links these problems with the failure of the public sector in the execution of projects. Technical problems, financial constraints and issues relating and ownership were some of the reasons pointed by the study to have caused the never-ending shutdowns. CNI suggest that the crisis the country is facing has forced the country to limit its spending. This consequently led to the interruption of different projects across the country.
The National Confederation of Industry is based in Sao Paulo, founded in 1938, it represents the highest body of the industry’s trade union system. Felipe Montoro suggests that the CNI study is part of a line of documents that were handed to presidential candidate in the upcoming elections.
