    According to them, between 2020 and 2021, the federal government included more than 200 projects in the Investment Partnership Program (PPI), through which concessions, privatizations and partnerships are made with the private sector for public works and services.

    Parliamentarians claim that these processes were accelerated, “in many cases disregarding stages, impact studies and other legal procedures necessary to make them feasible.” They also complain that privatizations were not discussed with society.
