The problem of hygiene and sanitation has become a national problem in Brazil, and it is because of this reason, the government has announced collaboration with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. With the help of the partnership, the government would be able to provide concessions on projects related to sanitation and hygiene and address the problem on a wider scale across the country. The new partnership would help the government to ensure that the financial resources are used in the process, and the entire process is streamlined to get better results, much more quickly.
Tata Brasil, one of the largest companies in Brazil in the sanitation sector, owned and headed by Edison Carlson, recently shared his view on this issue. One of the most widely respected infrastructure specialists, Felipe Montoro Jens, was also asked in an interview about his views on how to tackle the growing sanitation related problem in the country. Both the public figures were of opinions that part of the entire management of sanitation in the country, the 90 percent of which is presently managed by the public sector should be handed over to the private entities.
Felipe Montero Jens said that it would help the public sector to share its vast experience with the private companies, while public limited companies would be able to get access to the advanced technology and methods used by the private firms. Overall, it would help in getting the problem of sanitation, water, and waste management solved in due course.
Felipe Montoro Jens is the CEO of Energipar Captacao SA and has served as the chief executive officer of three different firms as well during his lifetime. Felipe Montoro Jens has done his graduation from the reputed Getulio Vargas Foundation and went on to study Masters in Business Administration from Thunderbird School of Global Management.
