Alongside Mr. Cardoso was former Tourism minister Max Beltrão and Parliamentary Tourism Defense Front president, Herculano Pasos.

Furthermore, projects have been signed by the president of the Joint-Chamber Front for Gaming’s Approval. Said filing states that proposals could be debated next World Tourism Day, on September 27.

“As Tourism Day approaches, we think it’d be the ideal week to nail down this effort. That’s why we push for support to get proposed bills related with tourism in the Legislature’s Agenda. That includes casino legalisation,” they commented.

“We turned our proposals in to Maia. We’ve also requested for an effort to get the Deputy Chamber to vote as soon as possible,” Cardoso Jr. said.
