Brazil Must Increase its Shrimp Exports, says Minister

25 November 2016

BRAZIL - Brazil needs to increase its shrimp exports, said the minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply during his visit to shrimp farming areas in Aracati.

"We have to increase our presence in the international market," said the Minister.

In the meeting with shrimp producers, the minister also stressed the importance of the processing of fish to help the country achieve a greater share in the global market as they are higher valued products.

The goal is to increase Brazil's share in world agricultural trade from 6.9 to 10 per cent over the next five years.

"We will not achieve this by only exporting more soybeans, corn and cotton," said the Minister.
