This means that 18.5%, or 517 projects, that are related to the Brazilian infrastructures.

The Brazilian government already shows that a significant portion of its resources are applied in the infrastructure sectors since the projects have been interrupted before. These government shutdowns devours the limited resources that may be available without generating benefits for society in general. These results show failure with the infrastructure and its public sectors.
In a recent CNI study, Felipe Montoro Jens states that the intrusion of the restructuring of preschools, day-care centers, and educational units with sports facilities should be stopped, especially since they are far less complex and much cheaper to finish.
Financial difficulties, budgeting, the abandonment of company projects, expropriation, problems with land ownership, and mainly technical difficulties are the main explanations that the construction is motionless.
According to the Infrastructure specialist, Felipe Montoro Jens, the Brazilian economic calamity has instigated the need to control spending. The state and municipal projects have been affected by the contraction of investments and fiscal deterioration. These economic hardships have caused many infrastructure efforts to be halted indefinitely.
The National Confederation of Industries draws a lot of attention to another obstacle in the country’s infrastructure developments. The control bodies and abstruse communications with public managers also make it complicated to complete infrastructure tasks in a timely manner.
