The Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), in continuation to the round of meetings for the Institutional Dialogues, which is part of the IBGE 90 Dialogues Project, met last Thursday, 22, in Brasília, with three other ministers, the navy commander, and servants from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic.

At Palácio do Planalto (official workplace of the president of Brazil), the president of the IBGE, Marcio Pochmann, and the special advisor Denis Maracci, met with the Secretariat for Social Communication in Brazil, Paulo Pimenta, and his assistants, with the objective of assessing partnerships aimed at the dissemination of surveys and of data produced by the IBGE. “The IBGE is entitled to the position of major survey institute in Brazil, having enough knowledge and capacity to provide extremely relevant information not only for the planning of governmental actions but also for understanding Brazil and for disseminating that knowledge the best way possible. We intend to reinforce our partnership in order to expand our capacity of contributing to the delivery of public policies,” Mr. Pimenta explained.

Also at Palácio do Planalto, there was a meeting with the Secretary for Federative Affairs of the Secretariat of Institutional Relations of the Presidency of the Republic, André Ceciliano, to discuss the increase of IBGE’s participation in Brazilian states and municipalities, and with Flavio Camargo Schuch, Assistant Executive Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic, for initial dialogues on sustainability and with professionals in the field of recycling and collection of recyclable material.

Marcio França, Minister of Entrepreneurship, Micro Business and Small-Sized Companies highlighted the importance of the Institute to gather information about entrepreneurs in Brazil. “That allows us to have a communication channel with a very renowned institution, the IBGE, and it can help us technically with surveys and data related to the sector in Brazil, in a partnership aimed at getting to know who entrepreneurs are, Where they are and have more information about their characteristics.”

At the Ministry of Communications, discussions with Minister Juscelino Filho included partnerships and data aimed at public policies in the field of digital inclusion. “We received the president of the IBGE and his staff to strengthen ties between the Ministry and this important agency in order to foster the obtention of information and data, and to consider ways to structure new public policies, also including the existing ones and a more effective use of data, so that we can advance towards digital inclusion for Brazilians,” said Mr. Filho.

The navy commander, Admiral Marcos Sampaio Olsen, received the IBGE for a first meeting intended to discuss the Blue Economy, which refers to a group of activities that depend on or that benefit from sea and ocean resources. “Considering that the Blue Economy adds to the Gross Domestic Product is a determining factor for us to know more about the composition of this factor in the national economy. Brazil becomes impracticable without the sustainable use of the sea. We have a sea area of 5.7 million km2, 60 thousand km of waterways, and 70% of the national population lives in a coastal area 200 km long. The navy is ready to cooperate with the national development, to generate Jobs, income and tax collection, and I hope we will benefit from this partnership with the IBGE in the short and medium term.”

The last activity on that day was a meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where projects aiming at the internationalization of Brazilian statistics were dealt with.

According to Mr. Pochmann, the meetings in Brasília reinforce the “commitment of the Institute to improve connections with ministries and governmental agencies in order to advance towards an even more accurate portrait of the Brazilian reality, encompassing the different sectors of surveys and production of the Institute, thus expanding the horizon for analyses by public policy makers and managers in Brazil.”
