Brazil is ready

Minister Tereza Cristina described the meetings as an opportunity to show innovations produced in Brazil regarding the adaptation of tropical farming to climate change. She noted that Brazil “is ready and willing to contribute to ensuring global food security, incorporating the principles of sustainable development into the core of its strategy.”

Brics is made up of purchasers and sellers of agricultural goods, CNA Superintendent for International Relations Lígia Dutra noted, adding that the meeting with the delegation served to “bring these markets closer to the Brazilian production.”

According to CNA Director for International Relations Gedeão Pereira, as far as agriculture is concerned, Brazil plays a crucial role on the global stage, as countries with a large population rely on the Brazilian production to ensure food security for the people.
