The aim, according to him, is to reach the best format for the country. PPI Special Secretary Martha Seillier said it is not yet possible to estimate the amount of investments related to concessions and privatisation at the Port of Santos.
The São Sebastião, Espírito Santo dock companies and Suape Industrial and Port Complex in Pernambuco have already been included in the PND at previous meetings.
Other important state-owned companies such as Correios and Eletrobras were also qualified for a future transfer to private enterprise. Modelling the sales format of each company will go through long study processes, which will hardly be less than 18 months.
In just over three years of operation, PPI qualified 248 projects, 151 of them already auctioned. The expectation of the Federal Government is to stimulate R$ 262.5 billion in investments in the coming years, in addition to raising grants of approximately R$ 52 billion.
