The Brazilian tourism sector is one of those that has recovered most quickly from the damage caused by the covid-19 pandemic. This statement was made by the Minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado, interviewed from Brazil in this Sunday’s Agenda (19). According to Machado, of the 378,000 jobs created in August this year, 180,000 were created by the sector. And the expectation is that, by February, 500 thousand jobs will be created in the sector.
According to the minister of Tourism, the Brazilian stand is currently one of the most visited at Expo Dubai 2020, a world fair in which 190 countries participate and show all their best. “Of these, our country is in fourth place in the number of visitors”, says Machado. He says that Brazil shows, at its stand, how to preserve and conserve the environment. The minister says that the country has preserved 66% of its territory. The Amazon alone would have 84% of the area preserved, according to Machado.
These characteristics make our country a unique destination. “The greatest biodiversity in the world is in Brazil. This is a great economic attraction that Brazil has: it is exactly its preserved nature”, he highlighted.
Machado also spoke about the resumption of cruises in the country and the Sustainable Tourism Label. You can check the complete interview in Brasil em Pauta , which airs at 7:30 pm this Sunday, on TV Brasil .
