Brazil is one of the world’s most populated and largest countries by land mass. It’s also home to one of the planet’s biggest economies. However, the country has been plagued by failing infrastructure for decades and has been unable to make progressive steps towards fixing its infrastructure problems.
The National Confederation of Industries shared less than a month ago that some 525 infrastructure projects hadn’t been started at the end of last year. All of those works were supposed to have been completed by that time. Since builders signed to such jobs and Brazil don’t have very tight schedules, experts like Felipe Montoro Jens have long worried about the potential of making progress to the country’s infrastructure.

30 highways, 16 airports, and 5 railways were included in the 500-odd infrastructure projects mentioned above. These are major projects, though they collectively – all 517 of them, to be precise – didn’t sum to be larger than two percent of Brazil’s gross domestic product (GDP). Brazil has plenty of large businesses and tons of income-earners, though seemingly not enough money to fix its infrastructure woes.
Felipe Montoro Jens shared in an article about the National Confederation of Industries’ findings not too long ago that things like companies simply leaving their responsibilities to the government behind, tight budgets, not enough money to make projects happen, problems regarding private ownership of lands, and planning difficulties were major players in preventing infrastructure projects from reaching completion.
Things like better planning, beefed-up internal control, and creating contracts that would pay contractors better and generally be fairer – at least according to Felipe Montoro Jens, a national expert when it comes to infrastructure.
Further, tons of surveys and studies cost lots of money to produce but don’t end up faring well is another reason for Brazil’s problem, according to Felipe Montoro Jens.
