PAULO MORGADO ON PUBLIC SPENDING CUTS IN JORNAL DE NEGÓCIOS (07-02-2011)
In this conversation with Jornal de Negócios, Paulo Morgado claims that the Government has a great opportunity to make public spending cuts by outsourcing its infrastructure maintenance. The Chief Executive Officer at Capgemini Spain points out that, “This is a step that the Public Administration should have already taken.”
He also criticises the Portuguese Government’s decision of cutting public spending by, among other measures, reducing the operation costs of public companies by 15% (including a salary reduction of 5%). Measures that he describes as short-termed and of little efficacy.
