Brazil is currently in an economic crisis and interruption of these projects worsens the fiscal situation. Investments are rendered useless as government spending fails to be fruitful which could otherwise help in boosting the economic by aiding trade.

Public utility managers alongside the regulating or control bodies should be vigilant to ensure the country does not head south from these interruptions.

Felipe Jens Montoro insists that we should watch the groundbreaking infrastructural projects come true in Brazil.
