Brazil’s Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo said the government wants to better understand the decision of US President Donald Trump to restore the tax on Brazilian steel and aluminum. “One must act with calm,” the minister declared.
The Brazilian government yesterday (Feb. 18) submitted to the European Union (EU) a request for compensation for the safeguards on steel imports imposed by the economic bloc early this month.
The tariffs recently imposed on Brazilian steel by the US are yet to affect Brazil’s exports, Minister of Industry, Foreign Trade, and Services Marcos Jorge de Lima said today (Jul. 3).
