Brazil's Government is reportedly set to revise its plans for privatisation of the country's airports to allow partners to take a majority stake in concessions, after a lack of interest from private partners in taking minority stakes, according to a report by Valor Econômico. The Government is also reportedly considering creating an investment arm of airport operator Infraero, to be called Infrapar, which would then hold the minority stakes in privatised airports. The Government is reportedly interested in attracting majority investors to operate Rio de Janeiro-Galeão International Airport and Belo Horizonte Tancredo Neves International Airport.

Global Airport Development Conference 2016 report: Trump, Brexit, pipelines and PPPs. Part 1
The Global Airport Development (GAD World) conference was held in Lisbon, between 29-Nov and 01-Dec-2016. This CAPA report chronicles the presentations and debates that took place on the first two days, including selected ‘stream’ sessions on both days.
There was, inevitably, a political overlay to the event, with the (Jun-2016) UK referendum on continuing membership of the European Union (‘Brexit’), the (Nov-2016) election of President Trump in the US and associated ‘uncertainty’ dominating events.
Otherwise, the concern was, as always, the ‘pipeline’ of airport privatisation details, or rather the lack of them, while the hope was for the continuation of the trend towards PPP deals.
