What do you expect from the Brazilian market in the future?
LQ: I firmly believe in the potential of the Brazilian market and I am hoping to see some change regarding the scenario we have witnessed in recent times, in order to be able to grow sustainably. Growth will be possible thanks to the investments we have made in infrastructure, systems and procedures. TAM Cargo has made significant investment because we believe in this transformation and hope to see results in the near future.
