SAO PAULO (Reuters) – The incoming government of Brazil’s president-elect, Jair Bolsonaro, does not have plans to cancel a controversial table that sets minimum truck freight prices that has been heavily criticized by farmers and commodities traders.
Bolsonaro’s future infrastructure minister, Tarcisio Freitas, told Reuters on Friday that the government will revise the values in the table, but plans to enforce it. Freitas said the transition team is speaking with all parties involved in the truck freight issue with the aim of resolving it in the first month of the new government in January.
