    Brazil’s government may invest 15 billion reais ($7.6 billion) into a private-industry fund used to finance infrastructure projects, Folha de Sao Paulo reported, without saying where it obtained the information.

     

    The banks would loan the money to finance highway, railway, port and airport investments, the newspaper said. The government may increase the amount in the fund at a later date, Folha reported.
