Brazil loses ground in trade with BRICS countries and wants to increase meat sales

Brazil's exports in the first half of the year to BRICS countries totaled US$ 28 billion. Imports in the same period totaled US$ 23.5 billion.

It is a positive picture, but over the last five years, Brazil has been exporting less and importing more from these countries in percentage terms.

Brazil imports mainly manufactured goods and exports mainly commodities.

The meat industry wants the Brazilian government to use the BRICS summit next week to negotiate better conditions for their exports.

The main expectation centers on the ending of the embargo by China on beef imports, which was imposed in 2012.
