The governor pointed out that the State is already investing in strategic areas to improve the economy, with the creation of new secretariats linked to Santa Catarina’s productive sector. “We are also applying, in Santa Catarina, new policies to help small entrepreneurs. In addition, we are creating a line of credit to our small farmer.”
