The government announced the possibility of concession with a national bank for economic and social development. The president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos stated in an interview that he believed services offered by the initiative would go through improvements regarding administration, resource, and structural areas. Trata Brasil deals with actions focused on basic sanitation. Edison could therefore not fail to raise the issue on reduced waste. He pointed out that 90% of the core sanitation services in Brazil is performed by the public while state organizations serve 70% of the users. Having a private initiative should not imply excluding the public. Instead, the two can work together in a complementary manner. He also said that government agencies have a crucial experience that can be borrowed through a partnership with other companies.

The national bank for economic and social development will prepare action plans for the state it serves. With the customized plans, the bank will accept the project that fits the needs of every place. Loss of water is one of the issues mentioned as the cause of the flow of financial funds of the state companies of the water sector. As Felipe Montoro reports, the situation occurs due to lack of possibility to receive services performed when there is such waste. As Felipe Montoro continues to report, private companies have more resources. They are hence in a position to prevent waste of water. Through the use of advanced technology, the enterprises can conduct water management in the country.

The government of Brazil has for the longest time been trying its best to improve the state of sanitation in the country. However, its strategies have not always been effective.

He noted that 90% 0f sanitation jobs had always been given to the state agencies. Thus, was positive that things would change with more involvement of the private sector. However, he did comment that the input of the public sector would still be required. Besides, they have the experience that would go a long way in improving efficiency of the private sector that already has the resources to undertake the job. He also advised that there be a plan for inspection by public agencies and that the contracts have a clear goal outlined.
