O Congresso da IST-SBTx realizado no último mês de Março, em Cabo de Sto. Agostinho, foi avaliado de forma muito positiva por vários participantes, para nossa alegria de “dever cumprido”. Por problema de espaço, selecionamos algumas mensagens recebidas pela Presidência da SBTx, que traduzem expressões de estrangeiros de diversos países. As mensagens de avaliação dos brasileiros foramsobretudo, ditas pessoalmente, durante o congresso. Dividimos com vocês a avaliação externa, tão importante quanto a interna:
