Lula will complete two months out of Brazil in 2023

Lula will complete two months out of Brazil in 2023 after his trip to Cuba and New York

President traveled on Friday, 15, to participate in the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the G77, in Havana; next week he will speak at the United Nations General Assembly.

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) traveled today to Havana, Cuba, where he will have bilateral meetings with President Miguel Díaz-Canel and will participate in the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the G77 + China.

The forecast is that on Sunday, 17, the head of the Executive will land in New York with the presidential entourage. He will make the traditional opening speech of the United Nations General Assembly next Tuesday, when he will return to Brazil. The president will have already the sum of almost two of the 9 months of his third term in trips abroad, which represents a record among previous governments, including Lula himself, compared to the administrations started in 2003 and 2010.

This year, Lula has visited almost 20 countries, including: Argentina, Uruguay, United States, China, United Arab Emirates, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom, Japan, Italy, France, Vatican, Columbic, Cape Verde, South Africa, India and others. Together, the trips will represent 56 days outside the Brazilian territory – already including the period in Cuba and New York.

In May, 2023, he pointed out that Lula’s international trips already totaled more than 80,000 kilometers and almost two trips around the world. At the time, considering the first 150 days of management, the PT already had 20 days outside the country. In previous governments, in the first five months of his term, Jair Bolsonaro (PL) was absent for 17 days; Michel Temer (MDB), for 15 days; and Dilma Rousseff (PT), for 12 days in the first term and 8 days in the second. Since then, Lula’s comings and goings in this term have drawn the attention of netizens and politicians. While some question the amounts committed, such as the expenditure of R$ 1.3 million for the trip to the coronation of King Charles III in the United Kingdom, others point to the lack of zeal for local politics – and the campaign promises not yet fulfilled.
