U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters in Washington on Tuesday that his administration is ready to work on a free trade agreement with Brazil. He made the comment as U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross met with business leaders in São Paulo. Ross will meet government officials in Brasília later in the week. Trump said, “We are going to work on a free trade agreement with Brazil. Brazil is a big trading partner. They charge us a lot of tariffs, but other than that we love the relationship.” Business leaders in São Paulo presented Ross with a list of ten proposals designed to improve U.S.-Brazilian economic relations. The proposals touch on trade, taxation, investment and other themes.
