The government gave in to demands for a better and improved sanitation system. This initiative will see the government partner up with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). Edison Carlos, who is the president of Trata Brasil granted an interview to Felipe Montoro Jens on consultasocio.com to try and shed some lights on this initiative.
Edison Carlos stressed on the fact that the public institutes offer nearly 90% of Brazil sanitation services. He also explained that government organizations provide about 70% of these services. In his view at http://relationshipscience.com/felipe-montoro-jens-p24643181, the presence of the private sector should not render the public sector inefficiently. He believes that the public sector has a lot of experience that can be useful through collaboration with other companies.
The bank will formulate a plan by each and every state it serves. By doing this, the bank will come up with action plans that will respond to the needs of each of the states. Felipe Montoro Jens also touches on the loss of water as the primary inhibitor of cash-flow in the state-owned water companies.
Edison emphasized on the vast resources owned by private sector companies. He also mentioned their technological advancements which would come in handy when managing water, hence create an investment in the sewerage system.
Felipe Montoro Jens also reported that, according to Edison on checkdirector.co.uk, a company’s success cannot be attributed to the fact that it is public or private, but to the way it responds to the needs of the people. He also mentioned the cost of operation as one of the defining factors.
To ensure a great result, Edison also stressed the importance of evaluating the contract between the two parties. This will help each party to assess whether what is implemented, is indeed what was agreed.
