ETCO releases 2014 Annual Report
ETCO-Instituto Brasileiro de Ética Concorrencial released in May the 2014 Annual Activity Report. The document details the projects that the Institute developed throughout the year to continue its mission of promoting business ethics through tax simplification and combating corruption, tax evasion, informality in the economy, smuggling, counterfeiting and piracy.
President of ETCO since March 2014, Evandro Guimarães recalls, in his message in the Report, that the challenges are enormous. “The road to improving the business environment is long and always subject to improvement,” he says. “ETCO is willing to pursue this path relentlessly and, therefore, considers the engagement of the business community and the entire Brazilian society to be fundamental.”
