Russian embargo: Mato Grosso wants solution

The Russian Ambassador to Brazil, Sergey Akopov, arrived in Mato Grosso on Thursday (September 13) for a two-day visit. Meetings are scheduled with representatives of agribusiness, industry, and the governor, Silval Barbosa.

"Mato Grosso cannot give up on the Russian market, which was the most important for meat produced in the state. The Ministry of Agriculture is not fulfilling its role in negotiations and in getting trade between the countries going," said the head of the Mato Grosso Farmers Association (ACRIMAT), Luciano Vacari.

With the suspension of imports of Brazilian beef since June 2011, Russia has reduced its purchases from Mato Grosso from US$ 309.43 million in 2010 to US$ 212.94 in 2011, and is no longer even among the top 30 countries that buy from the state.
