He says that within the area of infrastructure, sanitation suffers most with 447 enterprises affected during the phase of implementation. According to the author of the survey, Brazil invests little into infrastructure and plays a significant role in directing resources in the sector resulting from an excess of works that are interrupted before the shutdown ca consume resources that do not bring benefits to the society.
Felipe adds that the interruption of the construction of sports facilities, day-care centers, and preschools was also included in the CNI study, even though they are not complex and expensive. The study indicates that the discontinuation relates to among other factors, the technical problems, companies abandoning their works, budgetary and financial challenges, land ownership, and expropriation.
The study further attributes the government interruption of these projects to the economic crisis that Brazil is facing. Felipe Montoro adds that the fiscal deterioration and contraction of the investments has also affected the municipal and the state projects. This cuts investments and causes the interruption of an infrastructure project. Visit on his twitter account for updates.
