BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil’s Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said on Tuesday he is confident Brazil will get through the health and economic crises currently afflicting the country later this year and go into 2021 on a stronger footing.
“We will get through the two waves, and in September, October, November it will be in a new country, and looking forward to facing a great year ahead. Let’s fight for this. … I think we will succeed,” he said in a live event hosted by the Instituto de Garantias Penais, a nonprofit legal body.
