“I'm here on IBGE's anniversary to also congratulate all the geographers of the Institute. Geographers with a degree, but also those, as I will call them, geographers by intention. This house is full of geographers, in addition to those with a degree, a team that strives to carry out the IBGE mission of portraying Brazil”, highlighted Ms. Lopes.

Elizabeth highlighted the importance of statisticians and statistics for the development of public policies. “Statistics interacts with many areas and all of them because they all have real problems that statistics help to solve. The statistician plans a survey, collects data and analyzes them, and gives an answer to society,” she said.

Ms. Lopes took the opportunity to call the artist Anna Bella Geiger, wife and representative of geographer Pedro Geiger, to the stage. She announced that the couple will donate the geographer's library to the IBGE collection. “The IBGE is Pedro’s life. Many times we were invited to go to other cities, and he said he would never leave the IBGE. So the least we can do for this library is to donate Pedro’s book collection, with very good volumes”, highlighted Ms. Geiger.

The special advisor to the presidency, Daléa Soares Antunes, and the ENCE researcher, Barbara Cobo Soares, announced the creation of the IBGE Thematic Commission on Gender. “The idea of ​​this commission is to mainstream this topic across the Institute. Doing gender work is much more than collecting data about sex. We are institutionalizing a topic that has been limited to the Departament of Survey and Statistics for a long time. It is a committee that thinks in a cross-cut way about the topic in the IBGE. I would like to invite all people who are interested in working on this topic to contact us. Today, we have the possibility of bringing these people together and developing the theme here”, she highlighted.

The representative of Palácio da Fazenda, Ângela Carnaval, also present at the event, highlighted: "It is with great pleasure that we have gathered here to celebrate the 88th anniversary of IBGE. Today we will have the honor of seeing the inauguration of Casa Brasil IBGE, which will be a center for the dissemination of knowledge and culture for those who want to know more about the production of statistics and geographic data in the country."

The celebration also included the granting of trophies and commemorative medals to civil servants who completed 15, 40 and 50 years of service, as well as artistic presentations by the IBGE Choir, the NGO Meu Kantinho and Celso da Mangueira, a samba school's historic dancer, winner of the Golden Standard award at the 1992 carnival.

These are two fundamental bodies for the development of the region”, he pointed out.

The Director-President of Serpro, Alexandre Amorim, the Minister of the Upper Labor Court, Lelio Bentes Corrêa, and the Minister of Social Security, Carlos Lupi, sent videos highlighting the IBGE's getting back together with its bodies and celebrating the agreements.

The Deputy Secretary for Institutional Articulation of the Ministry of Planning and Budget, Marcelo Ribeiro Moreira, represented Minister Simone Tebet and highlighted the importance of the work being done by the Institute.

"I would like to congratulate the IBGE board of directors for the awakening that is being carried out at the Institute. The constant dialogue with servants, the dialogue with other federal bodies and the state, the incessant search for new opportunities for IBGE. This is very important and revitalizes the Institute. It is something that had been lost in recent years and that is fortunately being recovered now”, he highlighted.

President Márcio Pochmann closed this stage of the celebration, highlighting the dialogues that the institution is carrying out. “It is also important that the IBGE is open to listening to civil society and dialogues with public institutions, as we understand that the IBGE is responsible for producing data par excellence and it is the Institute's goal to disseminate this information in the best way possible so that public policies in our country can be thought of in a more appropriate way”, he pointed out.

Mr. Pochmann ended his speech citing events and upcoming actions of the Institute. “Internal and external actions will be carried out so that the IBGE can resume its central role in the development of a more united, informed and sovereign Brazil in the construction of its present future. We, thus, reinforce the IBGE 90 Years project, of a collective body and ready to take its responsibilities, as a protagonist of its time, and aware of its importance as a key body for the development of Brazil. Long live the IBGE”, concluded the president.

Casa Brasil IBGE is inaugurated both physically, at the Palácio da Fazenda, and virtually

The celebration also included the inauguration of Casa Brasil IBGE, which can be visited in person at Palácio da Fazenda, from Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 4 pm, or virtually, by clicking on the address https://www.ibge.gov.br/casabrasil/inicio-casa/.

Casa Brasil IBGE is a hall of memory and technology, bringing together in the same environment the different areas of the Institute and its activities, so that the visitor can visualize both the IBGE's history of almost 90 years, as well as the Institute's paths and perspectives for the coming decades.

Initially, with a physical version at Palácio da Fazenda, the aim is to reproduce in each State Superintendency a part of the Casa, which will show the external public the different actions of the Institute divided into nine macro areas: Library, Knowledge, Geosciences, Census, Surveys and Indicators, Digital, Memory, International and Regional.

“The 'Casa' is an invitation for us to get to know the IBGE outside the boxes, where it will be possible to find the Institute in nine areas, as the IBGE will soon turn 90 years old. Visitors can discover everything we have in the house themselves, through the totems, publications and other materials on display. This is a first exhibition, which will last 60 days, and is free of charge”, said the General Coordinator of the Center for Information Documentation and Dissemination, Daniel Castro.

The exhibition also shows IBGE's interfaces with the Brazilian state, its companies and entities, with universities, with citizens themselves, in addition to the Institute's connections abroad, in partnership for installation in Brazilian representations abroad.

The Casa Brasil IBGE at Palácio da Fazenda, in Rio de Janeiro, has exhibitions of historical equipment for producing maps and census questionnaires, samples of specimens from the Roncador Reserve, in the Federal District, and the IBGE Herbarium RADAMBRASIL, located in the Botanical Garden of the city of Salvador (BA).
