The National Confederation of Industry was established in 1938 In order to work with all 3 branches of the Brazilian government and create situations that’s in the best interest of the economic situation of the country. Using the data provided by the Ministry of planning the Confederation created a report they called “Great Works Stopped: How to face the problem?”. This report analyzed the economic data that detailed the number of projects related to infrastructure and the negative economic impact it is having on the economy. According to the report released by the Confederation 2796 projects have completely stopped, and of this 18.5 % or 517 are infrastructure projects. The report also highlighted areas that need improvement in order to get these projects completed. The report sighted poor execution from the public sector as a major factor as well as the need to prioritize these projects and ensuring they get completed. The National Confederation of Industry detailed a 6 measure recommendation to be executed to ensure these projects get completed and so the same mistake isn’t made again.

  1. Drastically improve microplanning.
