Second, the economic issue, with the resumption of growth, fiscal and environmental sustainability and social justice, the economic model we are defending”, he declared.

I’m with Marina here in Switzerland because environmental sustainability has gained a dimension in which Brazil has a lot to offer, not only in the resumption of historic commitments to combat deforestation and reinforcement of renewable energy, but also in the development agenda. We can think about the reindustrialization of Brazil based on sustainability.”

It is a demonstration of a lot of institutional maturity, given right at the inauguration of President Lula’s term.”
