The president of Brazil, the far right Jair Bolsonaro, said today that he will present at the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland) a "different" country, "free of ideological moorings and widespread corruption."
Bolsonaro, in power since January 1, will show world leaders participating in the Davos meeting, which will be held from January 22 to 25, Brazil's desire to "trade with the entire world, appreciating for economic freedom, bilateral agreements and fiscal health ".
"With these pillars, Brazil will walk in the direction of full employment and prosperity, I hope to bring good experiences and advances in our country!", Said the president in his Twitter account.
Bolsonaro, guided by his Economy Minister, Paulo Guedes, proposes a liberal recipe to straighten the country's economy, which accumulates two years of weak growth after a deep recession and has an important fiscal hole.
The participation of the Brazilian president in the World Economic Forum will mark his debut at an international meeting since he was elected at the polls on October 28.
At the meeting, however, will not be present the president of the United States, Donald Trump, who has canceled his trip because of the political crisis in the country that has caused the partial closure of the federal Administration.
Since coming to power, Bolsonaro has approached the United States, but also seeks a balanced relationship with China, its largest trading partner.
After participating in the Davos Forum, the president will return to Brazil, where he will undergo surgery to remove the colostomy bag that was placed last September after suffering an attack during the election campaign.
The president was stabbed in the abdomen when he was carried on his shoulders by a crowd in the city of Juiz de Fora and spent about a month hospitalized.
The attack prevented him from participating in various acts in the face of the elections, which won 55% of the votes against the progressive Fernando Haddad, successor of former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in the election race.
