Half of Brazil Agriexports Goes to Emerging Countries. China Gets 8%

Brazilian agriculture The share of developing nations in purchases of Brazilian agricultural products rose from 39.6% to 48.2% of the country's total exports, from 2001 to 2007. China answered to half that expansion, having risen from 3.7% to 8% of overall Brazilian exports.

However, if developed countries have reduced their share of purchases of agricultural products exported by Brazil, they have expanded their volume of total purchases at an annual rate of 13.2%. Developing markets, in turn, have increased imports of Brazilian agribusiness products by an average of 20% a year.

The figures are part of the Commercial Exchange in Agribusiness – Leading Target Markets survey, released August 14 by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. The country's total exports in the sector, from 2001 to 2007, went from US$ 23.9 billion to US$ 58.4 billion.

According to the Foreign Relations secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, CΓ©lio Porto, approximately 70% of the performance is a result of increased production, whereas the remainder was generated by rising prices of agricultural commodities.

To him, Brazil has great potential for growth in the sector, because it has low trade volumes with large consumer countries, such as India and Indonesia, which have a combined population of almost 1.5 billion people. One of the highlights is Russia. Iran and Venezuela have also stood out in recent years, with annual growth rates of around 30%.

Porto stated that the ministry is seeking to facilitate imports of fertilizers, one of the main villains in the food crisis, and is also encouraging exports in general. The first step, according to him, was fostering the formation of consortia or condominiums of buyers, so as to lower freight costs, given the fact that an entire vessel is often required in order to transport the cargo.

Another point is foreign missions turned to the fertilizer sector. According to the secretary, in addition to the countries that have already been visited, a mission of technicians and businessmen should be sent to North Africa, "which has large manufacturers of the three fertilizers: phosphorous-, potassium- and nitrogen-based."

    from 2001 to 2007, went from US$ 23.9 billion to US$ 58.4 billion.
    And the Brl currency nearly the other way around from 2002 to 2007 !

    End results ? A VERY SMALL GROWTH RATE….when expressed in Brl !!!!

    I am odious, insulting and wrong again ? Sorry for you, but may be not so !
    I know how truth is insulting in Brazil !
    I know how brazilians filthy officials manipulate their stats. So easy !
    And so easy to have swallow their lies by ignorants citizens totally brainswashed and blinded by the apparent golden stats.

    Now dont you read your own stats published by your own statistical agencies an interpreted the correct way, in BRL currency, not into a currency that declined……to show a higher than real growth ?

    Ladies & Gentlemen, Brazilian Idiots & Junkies, Augustus the not so Genius, below is the real truth, the only truth, if you can read, analyze and understand simple numbers :

    Let me have the same pleasure in proving the truth as those who have pleasure in manipulating numbers and lying on purpose.
    Therefore wether Augustus the Not so Genius like it or not, let me…….. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

    It is quite funny that in 2003 despite much lower production, your farmers were very happy and highly profitable, and are struggling at an apparent agriculture boom 5 years later. Proving that the it is not as great as your liars pretend !!!!!
    Just imagine what was the USA farms and exports growth rate had they compared then in BRL currency….between 1992 and 1994 !!!!!
    Their growth rate would have been over 2000 PERCENT…PER YEAR…AND COMPOUNDED !!!!!!
    Or said more simply, every ONE Brl increased to….OVER 20’000 Brl…..in just 3 years.
    This is the simple trick your cheaters are doing today, but the other way around of course !!!!

    But…but…..
    developed countries are producing enough food if you did not know yet.
    Of course, I am talking about the foods that grow in our climates.
    Better yet we have producing food commercially, many decades before you even started, if you did not know !
    And you are still a backward and undeveloped country for the inputs technologies of these foods, such as seeds GMO or not, insecticides, fongicides, mechanical harvesters, sprayers.

    And without advanced tools and products at the inputs/growing/harvesting levels mostly made NOT with Brazilian technology, you would produce much less thus being totally non competitive.

    But in Brazil….there is a voluntary….non talk about this subject and reality.
