Attracting investments to build a country of opportunities

From now on, our focus will be absolutely clear: we will offer technically and economically feasible projects to the private initiative, designed to improve the quality of the services provided. This portfolio will be managed with maximum transparency and efficient governance.

Under the leadership of the presidency of the republic, we are establishing concrete measures that will place Brazil back on the development track. Such measures modernize governance and the regulatory framework to create an environment conducive to the realization of private investments.

The new guidelines will ensure that concessions are granted under a healthy spirit of competition on the part of entrepreneurs, and transparency and predictability on the part of the government.

They are:

  • 1

    Concessions will be conducted under maximum technical rigor

    The market will only see projects with the robustness, consistency and capacity to bring positive results to society and to investors, preventing the implementation of concessions from being contaminated by distortions that often translate into risks to good governance, such as contract amendments and excessive rebalancing.

  • 2

    We will focus on improving services to the people and the productive sector

    We want to guarantee the conditions of our logistics and power sector to improve the lives of the population and reduce the cost of our products. We will require improvements that will enhance services according to the demand demonstrated in each project.

  • 3

    All contracts will have clear indicators so as to improve legal certainty

    Performance clauses will protect users by fixing service quality as the core goal of the concession. Also, investors will know exactly what goals they will have to achieve and how they will be measured.

  • 4

    We will restore the actual meaning of State bodies to our regulatory agencies

    They will be strengthened and enabled to fulfill their role of regulating, monitoring and supervising. The agencies’ autonomy is the assurance that they will be committed exclusively to the development of the sectors they regulate.

  • 5

    Auction notices will only be released after public debate and endorsement by the Federal Court of Auditors

    TCU - All studies prepared for the projects will be amply publicized through hearings and public consultations. 

  • 6

    All Auction notices will be published in Portuguese and English

    This was one of the suggestions by the Anti Trust Agency - CADE, who is collaborating in the preparation of the new model as a means to increase transparency and facilitate the participation of foreign investors.

  • 7

    This minimum term between the auction notice and the bid will be of 100 days

    The period between issuing the auction notice and the submission of bids will be in excess of 100 days to allow a larger number of investors to prepare to bid.

  • 8

    From now on, concessions will only be granted to projects with demonstrated environmental feasibility

    To this end, a preliminary environmental license will be compulsory or the competent body will issue guidelines for its acquisition. In the latter case, the guidelines will point to the necessary adjustments so that the license may be issued.

  • 9

    Our long-term financing model will change

    The trend is for funds to be arranged when construction work starts, thus avoiding the need for bridge loans, which increase costs and bureaucratize operations.

  • 10

    We will work to ensure that existing concessions will remain committed to ensuring balanced projects

    To this effect, advanced studies are seeking alternatives to solve existing problems in the light of changes that are shaping the new regulatory environment.  In any alternative, the government will conduct technical studies which will be submitted to hearings and public consultations and will also have to be endorsed by the TCU.
