“March was our best revenue figure for the year so far, so this indicates a growth trajectory for the remainder of the first half. But we know that it is Suframa’s role to be attentive to all issues involving the Manaus Free Trade Zone and that is what we will continue to do, in contact with companies, class entities, government bodies and other partners, in the sense that our Industrial Pole can be strengthened and, with that, the economy of our entire region will be boosted”,
