Minister of Economy debates state reform with parliamentarians

Administrative efficiency

Working group formed by the Executive and Legislative will draft proposals to modernize the management of the public machine

The Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, met on Tuesday morning (28/5), with the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia, and another 13 parliamentarians from 11 parties to discuss projects to modernize and digitize the operation of public administration. The intention is to reduce spending, generate more productivity and efficiency to the state's management capacity. At the end of the meeting, a working group was set up, between representatives of the ministry and deputies, to assist in the preparation of proposals.

Guedes opened the meeting highlighting that the seven special secretariats that make up the portfolio are working with specific themes and goals to increase the quality of management performance. "I want to assure you that our work will bear fruit. After the approval of the New Pension Plan, we will enter an extraordinarily positive agenda. State reform is something that will accompany us in the next four years. We are together in these reforms, "said the minister.

Paulo Uebel, the special secretary of Debureaucratization, Management and Digital Government, recalled that in the last two decades the number of servants and positions has increased, as well as that of state companies, which has resulted in more public spending, but not necessarily in an increase of productivity.

He advocated the importance of a state reform to leverage Brazil to more competitive positions in international indices, such as the Doing Business - which encourages countries to compete to achieve more efficient regulation. "Rethinking what roles the state should exercise and those it should not," explained Uebel.

For the mayor, Rodrigo Maia, the agenda presented at the meeting has a natural convergence with the parliamentarians who participated in the meeting. "I brought with me a group of deputies from various parties so that we can organize the voting on important issues to modernize and improve the efficiency of the State," said Maia. According to the president, after organizing the texts of the projects, it will be possible to speed up the procedures that are urgent for Brazil, in addition to the New Social Security. "The pension reform has a huge weight, but the restructuring of the Brazilian state also has. The Brazilian state has become more expensive in recent years and this has increased its inefficiency, "he concluded.
