The study shows that the discontinuation resulted from a number of issues, such as technical problems, financial difficulties, companies abandoning work, and expropriation. The National Confederation of Industry also points to the economic crisis that is still being experienced in Brazil, which resulted in the federal government interrupting infrastructure projects. Mr. Montoro Jens states that although this fact is more evident in the case of the Union, the fiscal deterioration affected state and municipal projects as well.
The study recommends a number of measures in order to avoid the interruption of construction works, such as designing more balanced contracts, strengthening internal control, improving macro-planning as well as carrying out efficient micro-planning. Despite the fact that urgent solutions are needed, officials recommend attention with programs and targets aimed, in order to not repeat the same mistakes.
