Brazil’s infrastructure needs are well known, as are the struggles to meet those needs. The Temer administration made substantial efforts to streamline and encourage infrastructure investment through the Program for Partnership and Investment (PPI). Substantial progress was made, but much work still remains.
An update of the PPI, with special emphasis on how the PPI could be expanded or enhanced under the Bolsonaro administration. Delivering the keynote address was Secretary for Public Policies of the PPI, Pedro Bruno Barros de Souza. He presented an overview of the PPI and results to date, as well as initial thoughts on the PPI’s future. Joined him in a panel discussion: Edson Ogawa of Banco Santander Brazil, a leading lender and advisor in infrastructure finance, and Jose Virgilio Lopes Enei, who co-heads the infrastructure and energy practice of Machado Meyer.
