Bahia will adopt daylight saving time again after a brake of eight years. The governor of Bahia, Jaques Wagner, apologizes anyone who disagrees the alteration and adds that the decision was made after much of consultation.


Wagner, who is behind the time change said that there is no interest to complicate the trade by having Bahia starting and ending the days at different times than most of the country. The business connections will become smoother with daylight saving time implementation.


With the new resolution, Bahia will move to summer time on 16th October.
