Felipe Montoro Jens is known for his expertise in infrastructure projects. Recently, Felipe decided to let the world know about how Brazil underwent privatization according to his knowledge. The study was conducted by the National Confederation of Industry (CNI). Privatization is essential to the investors in Brazil as it allows the country to manage the investments and also to meet the demands. In the 20th century Brazil was still owned by the state, but in 1930 the privatization process began as opportunities started to pop up. However, the State growth went on for about 50 years till when a debt crisis arose, and the process of privatization fully began. To manage the external debts the government had to privatize some sectors, for example, the steel, aeronautical, and petrochemical sectors.
In 1995, the government which was following the Concessions Law also decided to privatize telecommunications, transportation, electricity and sanitation sectors. After some few years, the Public Private Partnership Act (PPPs) was upheld by the law in 2004. The Telecommunications industry was among the last sectors to be given the priority of privatization yet it is by far the most privatized sector in the country. A law was even initiated in 1997 which gave the state the responsibility to regulate but not to provide any services, and this was the General Telecommunications Law. An agency called the National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) was also executed to regulate the sector. ANATEL is entirely responsible for the area including their tariffs purposely to create a healthy competition.
Felipe Montoro explains that the telecommunication sector had 12 companies that were sold to individuals. Each participant was allowed to buy only one holding to avoid monopolization. The process was successful, and this is the reason telecommunications is managed and supervised by private agents in Brazil. Felipe Montoro is well conversant with the history of Brazil, especially in the infrastructure sectors. Felipe is also a professional when it comes to finances, and this is why he holds the CEO position of a company called Energizer Captacao.
