Brazil and Morocco will set up an advisory committee to facilitate bilateral agricultural trade. The announcement was made by Minister Blairo Maggi (Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply) on Wednesday (16) in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh, where he participates in the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP22).
The creation of the bilateral agricultural advisory committee is the result of negotiations held by Blairo Maggi in parallel with COP22. “Let’s see what Moroccan products can be sold to us and which ones we can export to them,” the minister said. The Brazilian market is interested in selling meat, dairy products, soy, and corn to Morocco.
Brazil, added Blairo Maggi, can also establish cooperation with Morocco in the area of agricultural research and innovation. “We have a very strong research structure in Brazil. We have the world leadership in tropical agriculture and many things we can share with Morocco.”
