UBABEF asks Michel Temer to act quickly in FTA with EU

The chief executive of the Brazilian Poultry Farming Association (UBABEF) Francisco Turra, has asked the vice-president of Brazil, Michel Temer, to act quickly in the free trade agreement between Mercosur and the European Union (EU).

In a statement, Turra says the trade agreement between the two regions is critical to the expansion of Brazilian agribusiness export capacity.

The chief executive of Ubabef said the delay in the consolidation of an agreement between the two regions could negatively affect the competitiveness of chicken exporters. "Today we see that the main competitor for the Brazilian poultry sector on the international market, the United States, is about to make an agreement with Europe," he said.

Turra has also urged support from Temer in opening up markets for Brazilian chicken, such as India, Indonesia and Malaysia. According to him, it is only with the federal government's help that it will be possible to facilitate exports of Brazilian products to these countries.
