The National Confederation of Industry was founded in 1938 and is the highest body of the industry’s trade union system. According to a study conducted by the NCI, in Brazil there are currently 2,796 interrupted works, 517 of them being related to the infrastructure sector, the Infrastructure Projects expert, Felipe Montoro Jens, noting that this 18.5% costs a total of approximately R$10.7 billion.

The author of the study notes that, in addition to investing only 2% of the GDP in infrastructure, Brazil loses an important amount of resources, as the shutdowns are not generating any benefits and are a consequence of failures in the way the public sector executes its projects. Felipe Montoro Jens points out that the interruption of the construction of day-care centers, preschool and sport facilities was also signaled by the NCI study.
The discontinuations come as a result of, among other reasons, technical problems, abandonment by companies, problems of land ownership, and financial difficulties. Felipe Montoro Jens notes that the federal government interrupted important infrastructure projects as a result of the economic crisis that Brazil is still experiencing. He declared that while this is more evident in case of the Union, state and municipal projects were also affected by fiscal deterioration, which ended up cutting investment and causing the interruption of projects.
The National Confederation of Industry recommended six measures in order to avoid the delays or interruption of the project, which are: improving of macroplanning, evaluating the most appropriate execution method, carrying out efficient microplanning, better equipping of the teams, designing more balanced contracts, and strengthening internal control. Felipe Montoro Jens mentions that the study released by the NCI is part of a series of 43 documents that the entity gave to candidates who will run for Presidency of the Republic in the next elections.
