Brazil’s Finance Minister Fernando Addad favours cutting civil servants’ excessive salaries
He met with Simone Tebet (Minister of Planning and Budget) and Esther Dweck (Minister of Governance and Innovation in Public Services) to discuss administrative reform, among other things
Finance Minister Fernando Haddadhas come out in defence of a bill that cuts the super salaries of public servants. He said the measure would bring great savings to the country and moralise the civil service. It will also contribute to the modernisation of the state, as reported by Brasil 247, a partner of TV BRICS.
“We have looked at laws in the pipeline that deal with the modernisation of the state and could mean important advances,”Haddad told reporters. – I’ll give you an example: the bill on super salaries, which has already passed the House of Representatives and is in the Senate, could end certain privileges, which would mean a strong economy for Brazil, apart from the debate on the need to improve the ethical and moral level of the public service,” he concluded.
The statements were made following a meeting between Minister Haddad and Ministers Simone Tebet and Esther Dweck. The meeting was also attended by Miriam Belchior, executive secretary of the Office of Presidential Affairs. They discussed administrative reform, among other things.
