    Brazil minister calls Eletrobras privatization a 'priority'

    Privatizing Brazilian state power company Eletrobras is a priority for the government, the energy minister said on Wednesday, the day after his ministry made public a request for funding to carry out the privatization process. The privatization of Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA , as the company is formally known, would require the approval of Congress and faces an uphill political battle. "Within the Pro-Brazil agenda, it's one of the priorities," Mines and Energy Minister Bento Albuquerque told journalists on Wednesday, referring to a federal government program to reignite growth amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

    Brazil govt may create a new state-run company to privatize Eletrobras

    The administration of President Jair Bolsonaro may create a new state-run company as part of its plan to privatize power firm Eletrobras, according to documents disclosed late on Tuesday. The Ministry of Mines and Energy has required an extra 4 billion reais ($776.02 million) in the 2021 budget in case a new state-run company "is necessary," a document signed by secretary Marisete Pereira showed. The bill on Eletrobras' privatization includes the creation of a state-run company that would hold assets such as the Itaipu hydroelectric plant and a nuclear complex in Angra dos Reis, as well as government programs for the electric sector.
