China: Maggi says Brazil can meet global food demand
At the High Level Brazil-China Business Seminar, in Shanghai, Brazil's Minister of Agriculture, Blairo Maggi, said that Brazil has the capacity to further increase its share of the global agribusiness market. "The agricultural complex is highly diverse in Brazil. We can serve Brazil's needs and global demand," he said.
Maggi said his goal is to increase Brazil's global market share from 6.9% to 10% in five years. To this end he called on President Michel Temer to ask the president of China, Xi Jinping, who he will meet on Saturday, to expand trade with Brazil.
