Only Education Will Give Us the Brazil We’ve Been Waiting for 500 Years, Says Lula

Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva discussed Monday,  October 24, in São Paulo, with entrepreneurs how companies can participate in fulfilling the Development Goals of the Millennium, which aim to eliminate global poverty and hunger by 2015.

Lula affirmed once again that the Brazilian economy is "doing well," and he called on the entrepreneurs to invest more on "quality education" in the country.

Lula made these declarations in response to questions from entrepreneurs, after delivering a speech on the theme of "The Social Responsibility of Companies in the Construction of a Better Brazil," at a gathering with business leaders in the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Referring to the results of the most recent surveys conducted by the government’s strategic nucleus with the most varied sectors of society, ranging from rural workers to scientists and entrepreneurs, Lula said that Brazilians nowadays are unanimous about a single point:

"All these segments heard in the survey reached the conclusion that, to construct the Brazil that we have been promising since Cabral first alit on Brazilian soil, we need to invest in quality education," he remarked.
