IPFA Americas: São Paulo: Expanding PPPs to Drive Brazil's Infrastructure Growth
Despite uncertainties linked to presidential and state government elections slated later this year, some progress made through legislation changes are laying the ground for the development of PPP and concessions in Brazil. Attracting private capital will be crucial to help cash-strapped state and municipal governments cover their infrastructure needs. But the expansion of the PPP market will rely on consistent legal and regulatory framework accross regions and sectors, better guarantee structures and a deeper domestic debt market.
The event will start with a short presentation introducing the main talking points, followed by a panel discussion focusing on the key aspects of Brazil’s framework for PPP and concessions and initiatives to attract private capital into the Infrastructure sector. The full agenda will be announced soon.
This event will be held in Portuguese.
