As is the case with the Middle East, African participation in sector foreign trade has also risen, going from 4.7% to 5.4% of total exports.


In general, Brazilian agribusiness shipping has generated US$ 29.864 billion from January to September, a 33.5% increase with regard to the same period last year. The sector answered to 42.5% of total Brazilian exports up to September.


The largest increases, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, were registered in the sales volumes of products like soy oil in bulk, sugar, raw cattle beef, raw chicken, and maize.

In September alone, agribusiness exports to the Middle East totalled US$ 307.7 million, against US$ 263.7 million in the same period last year, a growth of 16.67%.


To Africa, sector export revenues rose 25% in September, from US$ 156.9 million to US$ 196.1 million.


In general, sector shipping generated US$ 3.839 billion in the month, against US$ 3.113 billion in September 2003, an increase of 23.3%.
