Unprecedented initiatives on social areas are the highlight of the 10th meeting of the PPI Council

Under the rule of Minister Onyx Lorenzoni, in charge of the Executive Office of the Presidency of the Republic, the Investment Partnerships Program Council (CPPI) held a meeting last Wednesday, August 21. It was the second time during President Jair Bolsonaro´s government and it aimed at qualifying 29 new initiatives (22 projects and 7 development policies) in the PPI/Executive Office portfolio. This has been the most diversified spectrum of projects since PPI was established, in 2016.

When qualified in CPPI, projects join the PPI portfolio and become a national priority. Changing PPI to the Executive Office realm has had implications in the sort of prospected assets, by adding on ministries and sectorial policies which did not use to make up the range of priority partnerships. Minister Onyx Lorenzoni has stated: “In this meeting qualified areas in this important program have become more comprehensive. This team has a goal: preparing and setting conditions that will allow President Bolsonaro to consolidate his leadership even more”.

After the 10th meeting, the total figure of qualified projects in CPPI goes up to 227 initiatives. In the current portfolio workflow, there are 119 projects and 9 development policies in the structuring stage.

The great news of this meeting was qualifying policies to support states and cities to forge partnerships with the private sector. It has been the case of basic sanitation and power generation based on sewage treatment with an aim at ending landfills; early childhood education; prisons and correctional facilities, street lightening and national parks.

Against this backdrop, it is worthy underlining the qualification of assessments for alternatives in partnerships with the private sector for building, refurbishing and operating daycares of the early childhood public grid within the development policy of partnerships in public infrastructure assets in states, the Federal District and municipalities; the assessments for universalizing basic sanitation and the assessments for  alternatives in partnerships with the private sector for building, refurbishing and operating correctional facilities.

Diversifying the portfolio has been celebrated and deemed very important by the Special Secretary of PPI, Martha Seillier. “Policies that have never been considered by the Federal Government as top priorities to appeal the private sector from now on will be. Policies that entangle providing services by states and cities will rely on a stronger support from the Federal Government to make concessions, PPPs and partnerships with the private sector feasible.”, she claimed.

Another highlight was qualifying the search for alternatives of partnerships with the private sector, as well as for maximizing results and efficiency gains in order to ensure economic, financial feasibility for the currently state-owned companies Correios (the postal service); Telebras (the telecom service); Dataprev (pensions informatics system); Serpro (federal data processing system) and CEITEC (advanced electronic technology center).

Secretary Martha Seillier regards the meeting as a turning point because it displays the formal willingness of the Brazilian government to draw attention from the private sector to those kind of assets. “Adding on these investments to the PPI portfolio make them top priorities. From now on we will begin assessing the best ways to attract investments for those companies”, as she remarked it.

Privatizing the companies EMGEA (Asset Management Enterprise); CEAGESP (São Paulo Enterprise for Warehouses and Stores); ABGF (Brazilian Agency for Managing Guarantees and Guarantee Funds) and a new concession model for Lotex (Rapid Lottery) have also been qualified.

The qualified infrastructure projects also include: 3 port terminals (2 in Port of Santos and 1 in Port of Aratu); the public policy for cabotage and a policy for fostering the TRIIP (the mass land transportation system for interstate and international passengers); supporting environmental licensing for road section BR 158/MT; road concession of BR 101/SC (which connects the city of Palhoça, in the state of Santa Catarina, to the frontier with the state of Rio Grande do Sul) and the assessment for privatizing the Port of Santos. At last, supporting environmental licensing in 4 hydropower plants have also been discussed and approved.
