He has worked with governments at the local, state, and national level when it comes to PPPs and developing infrastructure projects. One of the cities has worked with to develop a PPP is Sao Paulo. He worked with this municipality and private businesses to develop a project in which 34,000 housing units were built. This project started in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2023. Over 100,000 jobs will be created and the homes will be affordable to the residents of Sao Paulo.
He also worked with Rio de Janeiro on a project that is building that will build enough preschools to teach 40,000 children and enough daycare centers to accommodate 20,000 preschoolers. Felipe Montoro Jens says that this city has had a critical lack of these two types of buildings for years and a PPP to get them completed as quickly as possible is the most appropriate route to follow.
