Felipe Montoro Jens is an expert when it comes to PPPs or Private-Public Partnerships. He says that many municipalities around Brazil partner with private companies in order to get infrastructure completed. One example he uses is the Municipality of Sao Paulo. This city’s Municipal Housing Secretariat established a relationship with a private company in order to bring much-needed housing to this city. The project started in 2018 and is slated to be completed five years later. Felipe Montoro Jens says that this will result in 34,000 new homes and will create more than 100,000 good paying jobs.
As an infrastructure projects specialist, Felipe Montoro Jens has helped many municipalities around Brazil create PPPs. He has also provided extensive commentary about them so the public can be well-informed in what they are designed to do. Another PPP project he talked took place in the municipality of Rio de Janiero. He said that this city needed many more daycare and pre-schools openings in order to meet growing demand. A PPP in that city is building enough daycare locations to accommodate 20,000 toddlers. They are also adding enough space for 40,000 pre-school children. He says this project will be completed by 2020. As these locations open Felipe Montoro Jens says that private companies will maintain these locations while the city will provide the curriculum, teachers, administrators, and lunches.
PPPs are a result of public resources being scarce. The only way to get infrastructure in place is by relying on the experience and skills of private companies. Felipe Montoro Jens has been creating financial strategies for both governments and businesses for several years. Over the years he has worked on both the municipal and state level on various PPP projects. He helps governments and businesses streamline their operations so that they operate much more efficiently.
