Brazilian Government Concessions — Q&A on the Newly Issued Bid Notices (Federal Government)

On November 30, 2018, the Brazilian Federal Government issued bid notices in order to transfer the operation of 12 airports, 4 port terminals and the “NorteSul” Railroad to the private sector. They are part of the Federal Government’s “Investment Partnerships Program” (PPI),  launched in 2016 to expand and accelerate private investments in the infrastructure sector. Since the public auctions can only take place one hundred days after the publication date of the bid notices in the Official Federal Gazette, the upcoming Bolsonaro Administration will be responsible for conducting them.

The key aspects of the issued bit notices are set out in this article.
