Ideology Won’t Be a Factor in Trade, Brazil Agriculture Minister Says

BRASILIA – Brazil’s new right-wing government takes a non-ideological approach to global trade, Agriculture Minister Tereza Cristina Costa said on Friday.

Speaking at a press conference in Brasilia, she dismissed as “political noise” complaints from some of President Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters about this week’s visit to Communist-ruled China by lawmakers from the head of state’s PSL party.

China is Brazil’s No. 1 trading partner and the largest customer for the South American nation’s agricultural exports.

The Bolsonaro administration intends to do business with China “in a very professional manner,” Costa said, adding that she is already planning an Asian tour to include a stop in Beijing.

She said she hopes to negotiate “under conditions of equality” about topics that go beyond exports to address the infrastructure needs of Brazilian agriculture, such as railways and hydroelectric dams, and the possibility of attracting foreign capital to finance such projects.
