"Superpowers" for red tape agency (Brazil)

  According to a Reuters despatch, the Brazilian government has just set up a new state-run company that will have "superpowers" to cut through red tape across multiple ministries and government agencies. While technically part of the transport ministry, the Planning and Logistics Company will in practice be more powerful – and its creation represents a clear attempt by the government to circumvent troubled or inefficient areas of the government. According to Reuters," the company will be headed by a relatively apolitical public servant who has been working in Brazil's transport sector since the 1970s and is one of the president's (Dilma Roussef) most trusted aides. He also has good ties in Brazil's business community, which he says was consulted extensively for months to help design the new plan."
The despatch also gives details about the modernisation of PPP usage in Brazil.
