On March 24, 2018, a special meeting occurred in Mendoza, Argentina concerning the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) support for private investments being used in infrastructure projects all over Latin America. Leading the argument in favor of private investments was Dyogo Oliveira, the Minister of Planning, Development, and Management.
The key to his argument was the importance of utilizing a financial mechanism to leverage more investments. It’s common knowledge that private investors can invest more substantial amounts faster than public or federal investors. The reporter recapping the story was Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure projects expert.
When people started reading his articles about Latin America’s changing infrastructure, his name quickly shot to the top of the list for reporters people wanted to hear from. His coverage of the Special Meeting of Governors is one of the most detail and profound. Because of his expertise, he was able to represent Oliveira’s argument accurately. You can find Montoro Jens on Twitter @felipemontoroj to continue the conversation.
Oliveira didn’t go into the mission without support. The Finance Minister and Chairman of the Bank’s Board of Governors, Luis Caputo supported Dyogo. He also had the support of Garrido, the Secretary of State for Economy and Business Support of Spain. Spain is one of Brazil’s largest investing partners.
Everything Oliveira talked about pointed to preparing Latin America for the next industrial revolution. He wants to repair and change the infrastructure so that they can better reap the rewards of the Industry 4.0 Revolution. Overall, these investments should be used to help repair road, bridges, and water utilities.
As proof private investments are the right direction, he used Brazil’s Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) as an example. Brazil has already started looking for alternative investment sources, and it’s proven to be great for Latin America.
