The National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) will hold a public hearing on August 22 to discuss the privatization of the Port of Santos and receive suggestions for the process.
The notice is published on Official Gazette of the Union (DOU) this Friday (5th).
The hearing will be virtual and will start at 9:30 am (Brasília time).
Those interested in participating in the debate can obtain information on the BNDES website.
On Thursday, the Minister of Infrastructure, Marcelo Sampaio, said that the government will send the studies for the privatization of the Port of Santos to the Federal Audit Court (TCU) this August.
In a post made on Twitter, the minister reinforced the government’s intention to hold the auction later this year, in December.
In order to hold the auction in December, the government expects that TCU will give its approval for privatization by October.
The Court, however, may take longer to review the port project.
