Felipe Montoro Jens is an expert consultant on infrastructure projects carried out by the Brazilian federal government. Although Mr. Montoro is also known for his prowess in analyzing financial markets’ performance and determining the suitability of various financial instruments as viable investments, he makes most of his living through the Brazilian government – he’s technically an independent contractor, allowing Felipe Montoro Jens to take care of his family without being someone else’s employee.

Recently, Felipe Montoro Jens used his power as a well-known, top-notch consultant with the Brazilian government to listen in on the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) Special Meeting of Governors earlier this year. The central topic of discussion concerned the need of all the countries throughout Latin America to seek private investments in its infrastructure programs so that they could be built to a world-class standard; Brazil has received the most such private investments in the country’s infrastructure system in recent years.
Dyogo Oliveira, the Minister of Planning, Development, and Management, shared at the Special Meeting of Governors in Mendoza, Argentina, that he felt Brazil needed to somehow generate more privately-held investments for any and all projects related to infrastructure. Even though Brazil had, as mentioned above, received most of them, building up Brazil’s infrastructure certainly couldn’t hurt Latin America – the gemstone of Latin America in terms of being developed is Brazil.
Mr. Oliveira went on to say, “I propose that the IDB promote studies … for project risk management,” followed by, “facilitate the level of private investments in the region.” He also said that the country would be swept behind as the Industry 4.0 movement comes along throughout the rest of the world if Brazil didn’t have better infrastructure.
Felipe Montoro Jens also detailed in his coverage of the meeting that about 1,000 projects classified as public-private partnerships related to infrastructure had happened in the past 10 years.
