The Jewish investment fund announced that it wants to contribute to Brazil, in order to help the South American nation fight the drought in some of its semi-arid areas. One of the tips is for investors to hire the Brazilian army to play the concession.
In talks with foreign investors to make the Semi-Arid Development Plan (PDS) feasible, the technicians spoke with a Jewish investment fund, linked to «large families in Israel,» according to West magazine.
The investors realized all the measures predicted for the semi-arid region and showed interest in the concession of at least one of the infrastructure projects foreseen in the PDS. They even examined whether the figures reported in a 2002 World Bank study are currently applicable.
According to the information provided to investors, the total contribution would remain close to US$ 22.4 billion. «But perhaps even cheaper,» one interlocutor in the talks expressed to the West.
Because it is such a strategic project, the Jewish investment fund liked the idea. «They have more security in hiring a state entity than a private one,» said another technician.
«It’s similar to the United States, where the U.S. Army is in charge of running the distribution channels, at a cost 40% less than the private sector,» he said.
