Nation is experiencing ‘transformation within the dynamics of job creation’, says secretary
The special secretary for productivity and competitiveness of the Ministry of Economy, Alexandre Ywata, said that the current government’s investment in micro and small companies contributed to the drop in unemployment seen in the second quarter of this year. Ywata also stated that the country is experiencing a “transformation in the dynamics of job creation”.
“This is an important result of all the work being done to improve the business environment. We are talking about hundreds of individual measures that, in the aggregate, we arrive at this result”, said Ywata.
“This year, Brazil created one million and 330 thousand jobs, 72% created in micro and small companies. We are experiencing a transformation in this dynamic of job creation”, he added.
Ease of starting a business
This morning, the secretary participated in the Forum Endear, held by Sebrae in São Paulo. Also present were the president of Sebrae, Carlos Melles, the CEO of Aurora Alimentos, Neivor Canton, as well as other ministerial representatives and businessmen.
According to Ywata, one of the measures that contributed to job creation is the ease of starting a business. The secretary mentioned that the process lasts an average of one day and two hours in the country, reaching eight hours in the capital of São Paulo. He also cited the labor reform carried out in 2017, with the repeal of rules that were “conflicting”.
“This was attacked for us to try precisely to improve the functioning of companies, even from the point of view of job creation”, said the secretary. He also highlighted that, starting next year, micro and small entrepreneurs will be able to issue invoices by cell phone.
