    So proud of your numbers.
    Looks like a true victory, these agribusiness exports.

    A country is like a farm. What is produced is consumed in the farm. and only the excess is sold.

    Then with so much export of food, how can you still have hunger, in Brazil ?

    And this record was achieved under the management of a man of poor origin, defender of the poors and the workers, and from a leftist party. His name is…..Lula !

    If Brazil is what it says it is : the world’s garden, it is a true shame, a failure, complete mismanagement to still have hunger in yxour own country.

    And this has nothing to do with WTO, as WTO is for world trade not internal consumption, prices and availabilty !

    Sad reality.
