I reaffirm my commitment to continue implementing a policy of results that can transform people’s lives and move Brazil forward.
Daniela Carneiro also stressed during the ceremony the importance of the partnership with Embratur: “We are going to show the world all our joy, our plurality, our ethnic and cultural diversity, a happy and lively country.
