Previous minister Gilberto Kassab was pushing for the release of a decree that would implement public policies for IoT in Brazil before the end of the mandate of previous president, Michel Temer. But Temer ended his mandate and the decree was not signed.

Talks of a national IoT plan in Brazil started back in 2015 when a working group was formed to set guidelines to foster research and development activities, the creation of related businesses and connect isolated initiatives.
