In 2017, National Confederation of Industry (CNI) published its study revealing the state of development projects in Brazil. According to the study, 2,796 projects failed to sail through to completion in the country. Felipe Montoro Jens came out to clarify the study and said that 18.5% of the projects were under the infrastructure industry.
The sanitation sector was affected immensely with the events having 447 of their projects stagnant. CNI attributed the unprecedented situation to poor allocation of resources to the infrastructure industry. It was also noted that the situation was contributed to by poor planning and execution of projects by contractors and authorities.
The education sector was also hit despite its projects being less costly as well as uncomplicated. Felipe Montoro Jens said that the CNI had already foreseen the collapse of projects in the sector. In a move to try and explain the massive collapse of projects, the study showed that technical problems, land ownership issues, abandonment of projects by companies, financial and budgetary constraints as well as expropriation are among the major contributors to the menace.

Ilana Ferreira believes that technical problems and the economic crisis in Brazil are to blame for the collapse of development projects. She also noted that most of the projects were poorly planned and executed.
Felipe Montoro Jens agrees with Ilana Ferreira on the economic status of Brazil and he said that the government cut down expenditures in a move to contain the situation. In the process of doing that, it hurt on-going projects.
CNI went ahead to recommend solutions to the state of events by advocating for good execution strategies, micro-planning improvement, designing of balanced contracts, strengthening of the internal control as well as better equipment for project teams. In line with this, CNI director emphasized on the importance of learning from mistakes in regard to how Brazil has handled the whole thing.
Founded in 1938, CNI is the highest association or rather body in the union system of the national industry. CNI works with other bodies and authorities to advocate for the interests of the national industry. Website: http://www.felipemontorojens.com.br/
