FROM BRASÍLIA

President Dilma Rousseff has cancelled her trip to the World Economic Forum, which is due to take place in Davos, Switzerland, from January 21 to 24.

Instead, she plans to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Bolivian President Evo Morales in La Paz.

Rousseff had yet to confirm her presence at the World Economic Forum, deciding finally on Tuesday (13) that she would not attend. She will instead fly to Bolivia on January 21.

Morales is about to begin his third mandate, after being reelected in October with 61% of the vote.

He was present in Brasília on January 1 when Rousseff was sworn in at the start of her second term.

Brazil will instead be represented at Davos by Finance Minister Joaquim Levy, as well as Alexandre Tombini, the president of the Central Bank.

Levy said that he wants to make clear at the forum that Brazil is an economy of great resources, which is capable of making changes to macroeconomic policy whilst maintaining social programs.
