Felipe Montoro Jens Talks About Projects That Will Be Passed To The Private Sector

Felipe Montoro Jens, who specializes in infrastructure projects, reported that a number of government projects in Brazil would be passed to the private sector in 2018. A total of 57 projects will be passed to the private sector. In 22 sectors, an investment of $44 billion will be made by PPI, short for Program of Partnerships and Investments.

Most of the projects are schedule for the second half of 2018. One of those projects includes the auction of Congonhas Airport, and another project is the selloff of Infraero’s stake in various airports, such as Guarulhos and Confis. Felipe Montoro Jens noted that Infraero has a 49% stake in companies that have concessions at those terminals, as well as other terminals at various other airports.

During the second half of 2018, concessions at other port terminals will take place. These includes ones at Vila do Conde, Belem and Paranagua. Another concession includes ones at Vitoria.

There are a few other companies that are going to be passed to the private sector, but as of now the government hasn’t discussed how it intends to sell some of them. These companies includes Docks of Espirito Santo, the Mint and Casemg, as well as Ceasaminas. However, those companies (which are state-owned) are scheduled to be auctioned off at the end of the year, and they will be privatized.

The sale of the Mint was explained by the government. An official said the sale of the Mint was going to happen because of advancement in technology. The Mint makes Brazilian passports and they produce currency.

Dozens of terminals at various airports will be granted too. Some of these terminals are located at Campina Grande and Recife. Other ones are at Alta Floresta, Maceio and Macae. These are only a few terminals that are going to be sold off.

How OSI Group has Grown Its Reputation in the Food Industry

The food industry is one of the most vibrant sectors in any society in the world. This is because people have to be satisfied if they are to be productive in whatever they do. There are many food businesses in the economy, but not all of them guarantee quality products and services to their clients. One of the few food companies that has earned itself the reputation it commands in the industry is OSI Group.

Initially, OSI Group Inc. started as a family business operated by Otto & Sons. The Otto Kolschowsky business specialized in meat related products. With the help of the financial expert, Mr. Sheldon Lavin, OSI Group by then Otto & Sons was able to venture into new markets and improve its operational actives, thanks to the readily available finances. Years later in the 1980’s, Mr. Lavin was able to acquire full ownership of the business after buying the majority shares in the business.

With Mr. Sheldon at the helm of leadership, OSI Group has been nothing short of excellence. The company has been able to make huge contributions and strides in the market. Despite lacking training and previous experience, Mr. Sheldon has been able to build himself and the company to its success. Currently, OSI Group is arguably the largest food business with reputation for not only having a large market coverage but also producing high-quality products.

Immediately after acquiring OSI Group, Mr. Sheldon Lavin focused his effort on growing the business. His efforts saw him procure state of the art meat processing equipment for their different processing plants. To guarantee quality results, these pieces of equipment are first put through quality checks to ensure that they are both effective and safe for use. OSI Group also concentrated business expansion endeavors on acquiring a number of food businesses to grow its network. In the recent past, the company acquired the Tyson Food business in Chicago. Such systems help the business grow and expand its operations to reach clients in different parts of the globe.

In addition to this, OSI Group has also expanded its number of employees. Growing a business into OSI Group’s reputation is not an easy task and requires the help of well trained and highly experienced employees. Sheldon Lavin, through OSI Group, has been able to embrace his employees as part of his large family thus motivating them well enough to guarantee positive outcomes in his business.

Thor Halvorssen Wants To Protect Human Rights

What Is An Open Society?

An open society is a society that has a strong emphasis on giving people the right to determine their fate in life independent of how they were born. This is something many people take for granted, but in some parts of the world it simply isn’t reality. Instead, people are forced to live under the rule of oppressive leaders who determine exactly how they can live their lives. This is why Thor Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Organization. He wanted to make himself a voice for those who live without the ability to stand up for themselves. For more than 13 years the Human Rights Foundation has done exactly this without fail.

Exposing The Harsh Reality

Documentaries are something many people watch for entertainment, but Halvorssen intends to do much more than entertain with his films. He wants top do everything he can to make sure that people understand what life is like for those who do not have the ability to determine how their lives will play out. He wants people to see Buddhists who cannot practice their faith in Vietnam and political prisoners in Venezuela. When people see these injustices they are able to understand why they need to make a difference.

Connecting Activists Around The World

Right now, Halvorssen is focused on connecting activists around the world and giving them a way to stand up to oppressors on their own terms. The Oslo Freedom Forums are doing just that. Originally hosted in Norway, the festivals serve as a way for human rights activists around the world to connect to each other and share ideas.

About Thor Halvorssen

Thor Halvorssen is one of the most prominent activists in America today. From founding the Human Rights Foundation to his efforts to make himself the most prominent examples of the defense of human rights. Despite his efforts he doesn’t rest or let his ego go to his head. He continues to do just about everything he can to help others in need and bring about a new age of open societies.

Adam Milstein

Ideamensch Interview with Adam Milstein About His Investment Career and Entrepreneurship Experiences



In an interview on Ideamensch, in December 2016 Adam Milstein shares experiences as an investor and partner of Hager Pacific Properties. He is known in the investment industry and community as a leader and philanthropist. He is a partner of private commercial real estate investment firm, Hager Pacific Properties. As Managing Partner, he helps manage more than 100 properties valued at approximately $2 billion with three other partners. He also helps to keep the company’s real estate portfolio strong by including commercial, industrial, multifamily, and retail properties.



Adam Milstein heads the San Fernando Valley Office and directs disposition, financing and property management. When Ideamensch asked him about his idea for Hager Pacific Properties, he elaborated on his education and life experiences. He came to the United States in 1981 and became a citizen, continuing his education and earning a MBA. Two years later, Mr. Milstein started on a career in commercial real estate and discovered it was difficult. He decided to work as a Real Estate Commercial Broker and discovered much success, inspiring him to be one of the most successful real estate investors.



Ideamensch asked Mr. Milstein to talk about his business growth, entrepreneurship experience, and recommendations he would suggest to others. It’s one strategy he said helped his business grow, not setting specific and unrealistic goals which limited his success. The advice he suggests to others in the real market is to never let other people persuade you that the real estate market is abusive and uses you. He said investments into real estate takes time to earn profits and shouldn’t be considered as short-term investments.



In the middle of the interview, Adam Milstein admitted to one failure, the desire to become wealthy by investing all his money into one venture. He said it was a mistake and life experiences taught him that real estate is for long-term investments. Mr. Milstein says entrepreneurs must understand any issue and never rely on others to come up with solutions as the leader. The interview ended after he spoke about his partner, David Hager who influences his thinking and capable of helping others.
