During the usual "Conversation with the President" program, Lula reiterated his complaint that the great powers did not fulfill their environmental commitments regarding the release of resources for developing nations and called for the union of all countries to preserve the Amazon rainforest .

"We want to use the Amazon as a negotiating instrument with the developed world so that there are investments and develop the quality of life of the people who live in that region," he argued.

Likewise, the Brazilian president announced that his government is preparing a massive infrastructure program, based on the ecological energy transition, with the purpose of combating climate change, together with the other South American countries.

Lula confirmed, then, what was expressed by the Brazilian Minister of Economy, Fernando Haddad, who assured that a hundred actions are being prepared for technological innovation in the industrial matrix, which focus on energy production and the so-called transition ecological.

In addition, the Brazilian progressive leader reported on the Executive's plans to save the Amazon and stressed the importance of the area's population having dignity in their lives and earning a reasonable salary. In this sense, he asserted that most of them live in precarious conditions.

The president also recalled that deforestation alerts in the Brazilian Amazon had a 33.6 percent reduction during the first half of 2023.

"With deforestation the entire economy loses, we are going to play very hard with the federal police and if necessary with the Armed Forces to protect the jungle from illegal loggers, illegal mining and organized crime," he asserted.

In this sense, Lula reported on his government's commitment to bring illegal logging to zero by 2030 and urged the Amazonian countries to assume this goal together at the Belém Summit, to be held on August 8 and 9.
