The National Confederation of Industries, or the CNI, has published a report stating that the government has discontinued some of their national projects for this year. Felipe Montoro Jens, the consultant that the government hired, verified the report, stating that there have been a series of problems that the government had to resolve for them to address the issues. He relayed that there are several construction companies contracted by the government that has abandoned the project. He pointed out that one of the reasons behind would be the lack of funds and the problems concerning land ownership and expropriation. However, Felipe Montoro Jens ensured the public that this is only a temporary disruption of work, and the projects initiated by the government will continue after the problems have been resolved.

Felipe Montoro Jens pointed out that some of the companies which were contracted by the government to construct schools and hospitals were unable to continue after they were affected by the financial crisis. He admitted that the government should have hired a company that has a good track record when it comes to building and constructing, but the government never had the time to bid for more contractors. The National Confederation of Industries stated that the government should monitor this problem closely because it might affect the country as a whole. They stated that the economic problems faced by Brazil could worsen, and people could start revolting against the government if they found out that their basic needs are not being met.
The National Confederation of Industries has suggested several steps that the Brazilian government could follow to prevent a similar scenario from happening in the future. They stated that the government needs to do careful planning, buy better equipment pieces, and created better contractor programs. They stated that if the steps were followed carefully, the government of Brazil could see their projects finishing in advance. Website: http://www.felipemontorojens.com.br/
