Foreign Trade Secretary Lucas Feroz pointed to the recovery of Brazilian exports to places such as the United States and the European Union, which rose 44.9% in 2021 and increased to 32.1%. Sales to China (28%) and Mercosur, the main buyers of Brazilian products, increased by 37%.
He also pointed out that this year’s grain harvest should be a record, following disappointments recorded last year due to climate issues.
