There was bound to be a lot of discussion when the government announced the concessions it was going to make through a partnership with BNDES, the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Hence the views of Felipe Montoro Jens, a leading name in infrastructure projects, were really relevant here. Edison Carlos is the president of Trata Brasil. This is an institute that is associated with actions on basic sanitation. He stated that the basic sanitation services in Brazil will undergo major improvements with regard to management as well as in the structural and the resource areas. In addition, there will be a reduction in the waste levels too.
Till now, 90% of the basic sanitation services in Brazil were being provided by the public agencies. Now getting a private initiative is a great idea as both these forms of management will be able to work better once they act in a complementary manner. This is because the government bodies have a lot of experience while the private players have access to resources.
Felipe Montoro Jens has maintained that losing water is leading to a major loss of financial resources from various state-owned companies. Since the private enterprises have more resources, hence they can avoid the water being wasted. Besides, these private companies make use of advanced technology too. This is crucial with regard to the water management. The current situation in Brazil requires the rigor of such organizations in order to perform a significant improvement financially in these public institutions.
Felipe Montoro Jens further commented that the efficiency of an organization is not based on the kind of administration it has. There needs to be an alignment between its operation and the citizen’s needs. Even the costs will make an impact here, as per the infrastructure expert, Felipe Montoro Jens.
