Just as the Brazilian government’s latest concessions for a partnership with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) come to light, Trata Brasil’s president Edison Carlos opted to grant leading expert, Felipe Montoro Jens an interview. In order to make some clarifications regarding a number of issues which had been raised over the last few months, Edison came prepared with verifiable facts and figures of the initiative. His optimism was conveyed to Jens as he maintained these new breakthroughs would prove helpful in improving the overall structure, management and resources of this sector’s services.
Despite the growing concerns for decreases in waste that were brought up by Felipe Montoro Jens, Edison provided some earnest insight to the infrastructure projects specialist. According to Edison, around 90% of Brazil’s most basic sanitation services are conducted by the public power division serving approximately 70% of the country’s populace via local state sanctioned establishments. The president of Trata Brasil went on to suggest that these two fundamental managerial methods would offer more fruitful results for the country’s citizens if they only choose to collaborate instead of clash.
Edison Carlos would ultimately also make comments concerning the governing bodies and their misuse of enviable levels of expertise which could potentially be utilized as leverage in lucrative business partnerships with major corporations. With his past experience on an acclaimed board of directors as a chief financial officer, Felipe Montoro Jens knew which questions to ask, gaining data on the water loss connected to specific areas which has caused such fiscal falls for the state’s water sector company resources. Since Jens has history both in Brazil and abroad with major resource industries like ethanol, sugar, water and sewage, his unprecedented knowledge was the optimal foresight necessary to comprehend the difficulties within the country’s immense governmental operating systems.
