Brazil currently has 2,796 paralyzed works of which 517 are related to infrastructure which sums up to 18.5% of the total according to “Great works stopped: how to face the problem?” conducted by National Confederation of Industry. Brazil invests 2% of the Gross Domestic Product which does not bare fruits and ends up being wasted as the projects are shut down almost immediately after starting. The loss is because resources are used to start the projects and also to shut it down but at the end of this resource usage no development is seen.
Technical problems, abandonment of works, insufficient finances and land ownership problems are some of the problems that result to shutdown of projects. However all this is caused by the major problem of Brazil experiencing economic crisis. National Confederation of Industries also brought another problem to light, the last of interaction between the two parties involved; public managers who are responsible for the projects and the control bodies.
National Confederation of Industries suggests a number of ways to avoid these situations:
Improvement of macro planning, better execution modality, conduct sufficient microplanning, better equip teams, come up with balanced contracts and improve on internal control. Jose Augusto Fernades also suggested that the country learn from their past mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future.
