For the Minister of Tourism, Marcelo Álvaro Antônio, to be present at major events the sector is important to show that Brazil is increasingly prepared to receive tourists and investors. “It is a great opportunity to be able to show to representatives of several countries that the government of President Jair Bolsonaro treats tourism as a priority and as one of the main economic assets of the country”, he declared.
