Panel SA: Advancement of the PEC dos Precatórios divides businessmen linked to Bolsonaro

The advance of the PEC (proposed amendment to the Constitution) of the Precatório, which on Tuesday (9) had the vote concluded in the plenary of the Chamber of Deputies, divided the opinion of businessmen linked to Bolsonaro.

While Salim Mattar, the founder of Localiza who was Secretary of Privatization for the Bolsonaro government, went to social media to complain, Luciano Hang, from Havan, defended and won a like from Junior Durski, owner of the Madero restaurant chain.

“The Chamber unfortunately approved the PEC dos Precatório. It is a pity that instead of approving the sale of assets or cutting spending, the deputies preferred to pierce the ceiling and default,” wrote Mattar.

The owner of Havan, on the other hand, extolled the PEC as a way to make the R$ 400 of Auxílio Brasil viable at a time of growing poverty.

“Parties in opposition to the government, which beat their chests so much to say that social causes belong to them, voted against the PEC. They are thinking about politics, about elections and their own interests. Now is the time to help those most in need. people when they need it most?” wrote the internet retailer.

Outside the Pocket Narist circuit, business raised the level of concern.

José Augusto de Castro, president of the AEB (foreign trade association), says that the advance of the PEC at this moment is hindering the businessman who anticipated this year’s planning.

“Those who were programmed did not know the cost of this measure, which is causing the exchange rate and interest to rise. It is a cost that sometimes makes the operation unfeasible,” he says.

​According to Castro, it is difficult to explain the current political and economic scenario to foreign investors, who are being more cautious when entering the country.

For Fernando Pimentel, president of Abit (textile industry association), it is time to turn the page of the PEC dos Precatórios and move forward with structural reforms, such as tax and administrative reform.

“We understand that it is necessary to serve the most needy. But the solution was not the best one, because it breaks the ceiling and creates uncertainties in the question of precatório”, he says.

He assesses that the political agenda is predominating over the technique, and defends the restructuring of the Brazilian budget, which he considers to be in a rigid state.
