Visiting the Institute's stand, the former mayor of João Pessoa and current state deputy of Paraíba, Luciano Cartaxo, recalled the long-standing relationship he has with the Institute. “I have great esteem for the work of IBGE since the time I was a councilor, when we worked together in a law that determined the 64 neighborhoods of João Pessoa, facilitating the work of the Census in this city. This is a fundamental body in the elaboration of public policies, making a portrait of Brazil”, explained Mr. Cartaxo.
