Indonesia could 30,000 tons to Brazil's beef exports

The opening of the Indonesian market to Brazilian beef has the potential to add about 30,000 tons of beef to the sector's exports. So says the Brazilian Association of Beef Exporters (Abiec), commenting on the request made by the Brazilian government to review barriers imposed by the Indonesians.

On Monday, April 4, Brazil presented questions to the World Trade Organization (WTO) about a broad set of measures adopted by Indonesia that prevent Brazilian beef exports to the country. These include customs and sanitary barriers and licenses.

"Indonesia has a population of more than 250 million mostly Muslim people and has great potential for the Brazilian beef industry, which serves the promising halal market," says Abiec. Halal foods are those prepared according to Islamic law.

Abiec says the Indonesian market has been closed to Brazil since 2009, when the Supreme Court in the country ruled recognition of the principle of regionalization, recognized in the Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures by the WTO, as unconstitutional.
