Brazil, a country perpetually plagued by economic turmoil, is in its most critical state. When the National Confederation of Industry released a study on the nation’s waning infrastructure, it became evident why Brazil’s economy is rapidly failing. In one year, Brazil managed to abandon upwards of 520 infrastructure projects. As a result, railways, highways, airports, and waterways never came to fruition. With Brazil steadily declining, experts including Felipe Montoro Jens, Ilana Ferreira, and Jose Augusto Fernandes are offering up their sound albeit unvarnished advice.

Jens, a noted project analyst, is perhaps the most eager to repair Brazil’s fragile state. It’s for this reason why he conducted his own study on the nation’s infrastructure operations. Jens found poor planning, inept workers, technical difficulties, and financial restrictions to be the most prominent underbellies. Inadequate preparation is what Ferreira maintains will be the death of Brazil. According to Ferreira, Brazil’s “poor quality works indicate poor planning.” Ferreira suggests that Brazil often hands projects over to underqualified third-parties, demonstrating both their carelessness and hasty procedures. Above all else, the primary concern is that Brazil is seemingly unwilling to accept that their system is woefully flawed. Find out more at to learn more.

Jose Augusto Fernandes with the National Confederation of Industry is especially concerned by Brazil’s enduring negligence. Given the severe condition Brazil will be in if they don’t rework their operations, Fernandes proposes instituting “programs and targets aimed at not repeating the same mistakes in the future.” Meanwhile, Jens suggests the following solutions to Brazil’s economic crisis: improving micro planning techniques, training for both seasoned and unskilled laborers, strengthening internal controls, balancing contracts from all parties, and executing modality schemes. With time, Jens believes Brazil’s economy will be on the up and up if they embrace reform. However, if their dilemma festers, catastrophe will prevail.
