Brazil Roads: PPP in the fast lane

The Ministries of Finance and Transport in Brazil, supported by the World Bank and IFC, considered adjusting policies, structuring, procedures and practice to accommodate a step change in the Brazilian investment.

We provided advice on international PPP best practice features that are key to unlocking the participation of international investors.


Following a conclusion of a rapid assessment of procurement documents for a BR-476 toll-road PPP, we undertook a market sounding exercise on behalf of the World Bank. The scheme forms part of the planned Logistics Investment Programme (Programa de Investimento em Logística, or PIL) which aims to modernise Brazil’s infrastructure and stimulate economic growth. The PIL contemplates infrastructure investment totalling R$198.4bn (US$66bn), including R$69.2bn investment between 2015 and 2018. Our team has consulted with a broad range of concession companies, equity investors, commercial lenders and pension funds to understand their perceptions and potential best practice improvements.


Brazil is putting significant effort to promote its PPP infrastructure programme with structural support of the World Bank Group. We are seeing growing levels of interest from Brazilian authorities across the sectors for increasing international participation in the local PPP market to support public sector delivery of infrastructure projects.
