At the event, organized by the ETCO Institute, Governor Jaques Wagner will talk about the actions implemented to improve the management of public spending.

Ways to improve the business environment will be discussed today (04), from 13:30 pm to 18:30 pm, in the auditorium of the Faculty of Economics, Administration and Accounting at the University of São Paulo (FEA / USP). Bahia will be represented by Governor Jaques Wagner and Secretary of Finance Carlos Martins, at the event that closes the cycle of debates organized by ETCO - Brazilian Institute of Competition Ethics, on variables that affect business.

Among the aspects already analyzed in the previous three debates, are the social and economic causes of transgressions in the history of Brazil, the poor management of public spending and the excess of bureaucracy as factors that induce deviations in ethical conduct. Jaques Wagner will close the seminar and at the opportunity will talk about the actions implemented by the Government of Bahia to improve the management of public spending, such as the Transparência Bahia portal, in addition to other measures taken to improve the business environment and attract investments to the State.

The governor of São Paulo, José Serra, will open the event with the public, businessmen and associates of the ETCO Institute. “Our objective was to discuss, throughout the year, factors that hinder ethics, complementing this cycle with a seminar in which we will present viable proposals for institutional improvements”, explains ETCO's executive president, professor André Franco Montoro Filho.
