China has approved Brazilian sanitary conditions for meat production, as well as soy planting techniques, and promises to increase imports of these products, according to Brazilian Vice President, José Alencar.
José Alencar arrived from China this Sunday, March 26. He made several contacts in that country with local Chinese authorities responsible for the decisions in this area.
The Vice President says they were positively impressed with the rigorousness with which Brazil has been treating its cattle, and therefore, with the quality of Brazilian beef. They promised to recommend soy and meat from Brazil to other countries.
According to José Alencar, who installed a commission in Shanghai to take care of businesses between both countries, China is a potential market of 1.3 billion people, therefore, very important to Brazil.
Alencar evaluates the fact that Brazil today is more widely known and respected because of the Ministry of Foreign Relations diplomatic efforts, and President Lula’s external trade policies, "which has never been done like this by any other administration."
