Roundtable Discussion with Blairo Maggi, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply

We invite our members to join Brazilian Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply Blairo Maggi for a roundtable discussion on bilateral cooperation and investment.

Minister Maggi will be in Washington D.C. to meet U.S. officials to outline Brazilian measures designed to assure improved quality control over fresh beef shipments due to the recent U.S. ban on Brazilian fresh beef imports, and discuss other policy priorities that will benefit both nations.

While Brazil’s economy posted quarter-on-quarter growth of 1.0% in the first quarter of this year, agriculture expanded by 13.4%. The nation is headed for a record grain and oilseeds crop this year of nearly 240 million metric tons, a 29% increase over 2016. The U.S. private sector plays a traditional role in all phases of Brazilian farm production, including agricultural machinery, logistics and marketing.

Members only. Register here.
