Former director of the Sanitary Service Arthur Neiva arrived in São Paulo on Sunday (20) after a trip to Japan, where he was commissioned by the state government to study the health organization in that country.
Neiva also visited other parts of the East and had the opportunity to get a closer look at the rubber plantations in Southeast Asia.
He also observed the effects of the crisis that is shaking oriental rubber producers, a phenomenon that is already being called “crack”.
According to Neiva, the transfer of rubber companies to producers increased from 50% to 5% last year.
