BRASILIA (Reuters) – Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said on Monday that the information he received is that a manifesto articulated by business entities would have the objective of defending democracy, but that it would have been a suggestion by Febraban, an organization representing the big banks, change the tone of the text to make an attack on the government.
“Then the Fiesp itself would have said ‘so I’m not going to make this manifesto’, and the manifesto seems to be suspended because of this, they are not reaching an agreement”, said Guedes, noting that he is not involved in discussions on the subject for being focused on the issue of court orders.
The Fiesp (Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo), which is leading the production of the note, confirmed this Monday that the release of the text will be postponed, claiming that there is interest from other associations to also participate in the initiative.
Guedes said that Febraban is very active in defending the interests of banks in tax reform, which he said he considered “commendable”.
“I think that if she defends democracy it is also very good, we want the defense of democracy, of reforms, everything is fine, everything is fine.”
“Now, if there is a public bank not wanting to sign, it is possibly because the terms… the information I have is this, that there would be a manifesto in defense of democracy, and then there would be no problem. And that someone at Febraban would have changed that so that, instead of being a defense of democracy, it would be an attack on the government”, said Guedes.
