Well-intentioned yet ill-equipped, Brazil makes continual efforts to enhance their country’s landscape. Unfortunately, their infrastructure jobs seldom pan out. From their lackadaisical approaches to their unskilled workers, Brazil’s operations are mediocre at best. As a result, their economy is rapidly declining. In an effort to highlight the severity of this issue, the National Confederation of Industry conducted a study that revealed some alarming figures. In 2017, Brazil halted 2,796 jobs. Nearly 19 percent of those jobs were infrastructure projects. Totaling a loss of over $10 billion, 2017 was not Brazil’s finest hour.
Fortunately, specialists are introducing ways in which Brazil can repair their withering economy. Felipe Montoro Jens is one such expert, and he’s keen to restore prosperity and hope within Brazilian markets. According to Jens, Brazil’s infrastructure issue is emblematic of a larger problem – an incompetent public sector. Unfortunately, Jens doesn’t have any solutions for that troubled area. However, he does have practical proposals. Improving micro-planning, designing balanced contracts, reinstating internal control, and training employees are among some of his suggested resolutions. If implemented, Brazil could rapidly turn their economy around.
Other industry specialists are in agreement with Felipe Montoro Jens, and they continually advocate for rapid reform. Otherwise, they fear an economic catastrophe of irreparable damage will unfold. José Augusto Fernandes, a member of the National Confederation of Industry, is far more concerned with Brazil’s negligence than anything else. In fact, Fernandes claims that the “country seems unable to learn from the losses and conflicts their methods produce.” Unfortunately, Brazil hasn’t been receptive to the advice they’ve been given. It’s for this reason why Ilana Ferreira, another constituent of the National Confederation of Industry, fears that Brazil’s displays of carelessness will lead to the demise of the economy.
