Brazil, Suriname Sign Law-Enforcement Cooperation Pact Covering Amazon

BRASILIA – Brazilian President Michel Temer and his Surinamese counterpart, Desi Bouterse, agreed on Wednesday to bolster law enforcement activities along their shared Amazonian border.

“Better cooperation between police forces will result in more coordinated actions in the fight against transnational crime,” Temer said after meeting in private with Bouterse at the presidential palace.

Bouterse noted the importance of security agreements with Brazil, saying that law enforcement cooperation should be bolstered across South America.

The Surinamese president invited Temer to strengthen trade both at the bilateral level and across the region to increase the benefits of agreements signed by the Mercosur bloc – Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay – and the Caribbean Community, which includes Suriname.

During Bouterse’s visit, Suriname and Brazil signed six agreements covering scientific and technical cooperation in agriculture, fishing, the environment and security.

Even though cross-border business is intense and bilateral trade increased 22 percent in 2017, trade totaled just $40.1 million, with a $29.4 million surplus favoring Brazil.
