Marina Silva also reinforced that she will seek financial resources for environmental preservation in Brazil, in line with the reopening of the Amazon Fund , financed by Germany and Norway. There are expectations of UK participation in the partnership.

Haddad, on the other hand , anticipated the importance of the tax reform , with the proposal to exempt the poorest strata from the income tax , demonstrating the expectation of rebalancing the Brazilian tax system – in addition to increasing the credit of Brazilian men and women and generating an appreciation of the minimum wage, allowing greater purchasing power .

The Governor of the State of São Paulo, Tarcísio Freitas , was also present at the Forum to present the Green Agenda and seek investors for the project. The Agenda is based on energy transition, green hydrogen and second-generation ethanol . In this way, the State would aim to strengthen the energy matrix of São Paulo, with approximately 60% of the share coming from renewable sources .
