Thanks do Sugarcane Brazil’s Agribusiness Beats Another Record

With US$ 43.6 billion, Brazilian agribusiness exports set a new record in 2005. The result was 11% higher than that of 2004 (US$39.016 billion).

The new data were released this Thursday, January 5, by the Secretariat of Agribusiness International Relations (SRI), of the Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply.

According to the Secretariat, the products that contributed the most with the increase in exports were sugar and alcohol (49%), coffee (42%), meat (31%), and paper and cellulose (17%).

For the SRI, the main reason for this result was the high growth in the world economy, which would have caused greater demand for goods and increase in products prices.
