The government of Santa Catarina said on Friday (17) that adherence to the request to return to summer time is practically unanimous in the sectors of tourism, events, restaurants and commerce in the state, according to a survey carried out with business leaders at the request of Governor Carlos Moisés .
The president of Santur (Santa Catarina Tourism Development Agency), Renê Meneses, also pointed out the benefits of changing the clock, such as the increase in the flow of people in the establishments and greater willingness to travel and shop.
According to Paulo Solumucci, president of Abrasel (bar and restaurant association) and one of the supporters of the proposal, the entities that plead for the return of daylight saving time now plan to ask tourism secretaries in favor of the measure to manifest themselves publicly.
Solmucci says he sees gains for Bolsonaro if the president adheres to the change. “There are a lot of people who think he [Bolsonaro] is headstrong. It would be a gesture that can show a willingness to review positions”, he says.
