There is about to be a change in the way the Brazil government handles the sanitation needs of its citizens. It comes in the form of concessions that allow for a little competition, and hopefully a lot of collaboration, between the state and the private sector. Really, the main objective behind this initiative is to see that the needs of about 90 per cent of the nation-state’s population are sufficiently met.
In the case of Brazil, as in many other countries as well, the private sector has more resources to produce services and technologies in service to the public needs. The national Bank for economic and Social Development is to be a major partner in the financial backing of this transition. And, although things seem just a little overwhelming, the president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos, points out that there are definite benefits from following through on this project.
In the meanwhile, there is one reporter watching it all happening and connecting the dots rather thoughtfully. Felipe Montoro Jens, notes that waste makes more waste when it comes to how state finances flow to water companies in comparison to how much water they waste. When it comes to how to determine the mode of operation when it comes to customer satisfaction, Edison states that the key factor is how the business is executively run.
Felipe Montoro Jens has a completely different take on situation and believes that it is ultimately the costs to customers that makes the bottom line. The fact that he serves at His company S.A., Energipar Captacao S.A., and His company Participacoes as CEO (Chief Executive Officer) gives his insights on the matter a little weight. And, that does not even mention the slew of affiliations from Braskem S.A. to the Concessionaria do Centro Administrativo Distrito. So, if he thinks it is a good idea, just think how right things can go, from a business and public service standpoint.
