The Brazilian Internet Association (Abranet) signed an open letter , signed by several entities in the sector, in which Minister Luciana Barbosa de Oliveira Santos, from the Science, Technology and Innovation portfolio, is asked that the future leaders of the Science and Technology Secretariat for Digital Transformation and the Secretariat for Technological Development and Innovation “necessarily have a technical background and profile and prior knowledge of the functioning of the ministry”.

The entities highlighted as positive the change in the Ministry's organizational chart for the establishment of new secretariats. They state that the division “will contribute to the efficiency and effectiveness of the activities of the MCTI in revitalizing the national strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation”. They also justify the importance of technical appointments given the relevance of the attributions of these secretariats.

“The development of Brazil cannot do without scientific literacy, technological education, the promotion of applied research in the production of technology-based goods and services. At that moment, the MCTI's greater mission of raising employment levels in Science and Technology to generate wealth from innovation and digital transformation and socialization of knowledge, becomes the task of all of us”, expresses the letter.

The document also emphasizes the desire of the signatory associations that the new secretaries continue to work “in a harmonious and productive way with all sectors of the digital ecosystem that, from now on, seek to continue adding to the efforts to strengthen the economy of Brazil from the engagement of the triple helix composed of State, Companies and Academia”.

The letters are signed by ABES, ABIMDE, Abinee, ABPTI, Abradisti, Abranet, Acate, Anid, Anjos do Brasil, Brasscom, Associação Assespro and IBD.
