Although the idea of privatization in Brazil came up in the 1930’s, privatization of the infrastructure program began in the late 80’s as a result of a debt crisis. The government then intervened and standardized privatization to economic reform platforms. The government then passed a law, the Concession’s Law, which set out a couple of industries as priorities of this privatization program. These companies include banking corporations, telecommunications, electricity, sanitation and transport. Being a specialist in infrastructure, Felipe’s recent partnership would result to reduced waste as well as improved sanitary conditions in Brazil. Other industries included were steel, petrochemical and aeronautical industries.
