Privatization and Regulatory Reform in Brazil: The Case of Freight Railways

Antonio Estache, Andrea Goldstein and Russell Pittman ()

Working Papers from U.S. Department of Justice - Antitrust Division

Abstract: A variety of proposals for creating more competition within the railroad sector are under consideration in countries throughout the world. Brazil, though something of latecomer to wider infrastructure reform, has recently taken large steps in restructuring its railroad system. This paper analyzes Brazil's ongoing railroad reforms, seeking to place them in the context both of broader reform project going on Brazil and railroad reforms taking place in developing and developed countries worldwide.
