SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's Infrastructure Minister Tarcisio Freitas said on Tuesday it is possible to privatise or liquidate 100 state-run companies, including their subsidiaries, reflecting the new administration's drive to reduce the size of the state.

Speaking in a radio interview, the minister said also that the government is considering awarding operating licenses for 5,600 kilometres of roads.
