Economy Minister Paulo Guedes spoke out in defense on Thursday (22) of the ministerial reform announced by President Jair Bolsonaro. The portfolio led by Guedes will be directly impacted by the re-creation of the Ministry of Labor, which will be occupied by Onyx Lorenzoni. “There is an internal reorganization that is taking place without any threat at the heart of economic policy. Zero threat,” said the minister.
Guedes said Onyx, current minister of the General Secretariat of the Presidency, is in line with the ministry’s schedule. “It’s not going to change the direction of economic policy. It’s the same. When we put together the economic plan, Onyx was there.”
