“We have enormous potential in nature tourism, especially in the post-pandemic period, and that is why we are the best destination for both those who want to travel and those who want to invest. For this reason, the Brazilian government has developed a series of actions to reduce bureaucracy in the sector and put an end to the obstacles that hinder the development of tourism in Brazil ”, comments the Minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado Neto.
