Secretary Paulo Uebel speaks tomorrow about improving the business environment in Brazil

Bureaucratization

He Attends Enap-Endeavor Agreement Signing Event to Reduce Business Bureaucracy

The head of the Special Secretariat of Bureaucratization, Management and Digital Government of the Ministry of Economy, Paulo Uebel, will speak on Thursday (1/8) at the launch event of the partnership between the National School of Public Administration (Enap) and the organization Endeavor. , supporting high impact entrepreneurs. The focus of the event, starting at 9 am, at Enap's headquarters, is reducing red tape and improving the business environment in Brazil. 

The Secretariat, which articulated the agreement between Endeavor - the global nonprofit platform - and Enap, is committed to finding ways to stimulate reforms in municipalities to reduce the time and bureaucracy required to formalize business in the country. 

According to the Doing Business ranking - published annually by the World Bank, assessing the ease of doing business - the average time to start a business in Brazil is 62 days, while in Argentina it is 11 and in Turkey only 7 days. 

To reduce this number in the country, the Secretariat is supporting Endeavor's Simplification Map, which brings together national and international best practices to simplify business start-up processes. The map shows a walkthrough that helps any municipality cut red tape and attract business. 

According to Endeavor, a number of factors determine the ability of municipalities to generate business, create jobs, attract investment and foster innovation. 60 of these indicators were compiled in the Entrepreneurial Cities Index, a publication that directly impacted the 32 municipalities analyzed - some can start businesses in an hour - and caused the desire to change in hundreds of other municipalities. 

The Enap-Endeavor partnership is structured in two main projects: the elaboration of new editions of the Entrepreneurial Cities Index; and the production of the distance education course “Business Opening: How to redesign and simplify processes”.
