SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazil’s President Michel Temer said on Monday that he soon plans to start work on simplifying the country’s tax code, following the government’s successful passage last week of a landmark labor reform.
In a video posted to his Twitter account, Temer cited job creation and a recovery in investment as signs that Latin America’s largest economy is leaving recession behind.
