Government agencies across Brazil have recently been reporting the need to invest heavily in the infrastructure of the nation as areas including basic water sanitation have not seen major upgrades in a number of years. Public sector investment specialist Felipe Montoro Jens has recently been examining the benefits that can be had from the announcement of significant concessions made to private sector companies making the decision to become involved in the water sanitation process.
Both Felipe Monotoro Jens and Edison Carlos of Trata Brasil believe major benefits can be obtained for the public when private sector experts become involved in the development of basic water sanitation technology. In Brazil, the number of private water companies taking part in sanitation projects is low with around 90 percent of waste water programs operated by power companies and a further 70 percent by state owned companies. Water losses remain high in many regions as a lack of investment has allowed limited levels of new technology to be used in many areas, but a dedicated list of concessions should make a major difference in the view of Felipe Montoro Jens.
A leading infrastructure specialist, Felipe Montoro Jens has developed a strong career that sees him able to provide his skills in various areas including financial and planning sectors. The global recognition of the work completed by the financial expert has seen him take up positions with world renowned organizations, such as PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Enron.
The graduate of the Thunderbird School of Global Management has recently developed his own career as a public speaker at events, such as the World Economic Forum where he discussed the benefits of bringing major corporations to South American countries.
