Brazilian mission to promote agri-business in China

15 September 2009

Brasilia, Brazil, 15 Sept – The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, in partnership with the Foreign Relations Ministry, plans to send a mission to China to promote Brazilian agri-business.

The group will attend the Food and Hotel fair held in November in Shanghai.

China is the main destination of exports from Brazil’s agri-business sector. The main product is soy. This is followed by cellulose pulp, cow hide and unrefined soy oil.

This will be the fourth partnership on international missions between the two ministries this year. The first trip with a view to promoting Brazilian agricultural projects was to South Africa in June. (macauhub)
