During the videoconference held on Tuesday, 14, parliamentarians also explained the bill of land regularization to representatives of investment brokers
Deputies met on Tuesday, 14, by videoconference, with representatives of foreign investment brokers who have charged environmental preservation actions of the Brazilian government. In the conversation, parliamentarians gave more details of bill 2633, which provides for land regularization, and asked for support from foreign investors in maintaining funds that stimulate the preservation of the environment.
The meeting took place at the request of foreign investors. After holding a videoconference with Vice President Hamilton Mourão and part of the ministers of the Bolsonaro government, last Thursday, 9, the interlocutors felt the need to better understand the proposal for land regularization presented by the Minister of Agriculture, Tereza Cristina.
The rapporteur of bill 2633, Congressman Marcelo Ramos (PL-AM), was responsible for detailing the proposal to investors. The meeting also had the participation of the leader of the Environmental Parliamentary Front, Federal Deputy Rodrigo Agostinho (PSB-SP), the president of the Parliamentary Front of Agriculture (FPA), Congressman Alceu Moreira (MDB-RS), and the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia.
Ramos called the conversation "enlightening." "After much misinformation, it becomes clear that the approval of the PL of land regularization is a fundamental instrument to combat land grabbing and deforestation," he said.
The leader of the Parliamentary Environmental Front also defended the need for foreign investments on other fronts of action for sustainability. "For you, the simplest action may be the boycott of Brazilian products. But a boycott will have only the perverse effect of amplifying the problem. We need and want your help. For this, it is necessary to separate wheat from tares and invest in public policies to combat deforestation, in command and control actions that value standing forest, reforestation, and the inclusion of small family producers and local communities", Said Agostinho to the interlocutors.
The leader of the agro bench said that although the meeting was important, it was not conclusive. Moreira believes that more dialogue is needed. "We at the Parliamentary Front for Agriculture feel that we need to work more with the embassies of the countries. Because, in embassies, with longer meetings, it is possible to pass on all the knowledge of the theme that will then be passed on to the countries. Just as misinformation about Brazilian agro was built, we have to have the ability to rebuild international trust. And that doesn't happen overnight," he concluded.
