Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi said yesterday in an interview with reporters that Brazil could adopt more aggressive measures against countries that decide to completely suspend imports of Brazilian beef. He was specific in relation to Chile, saying that Brazil could take action against that country if it decided on a general prohibition. .
“We are big importers of Chilean products – fish, fruits – and the Brazilian producers are always complaining that we should create barriers. It’s just good. Trade is the elbow and if I have to have a stronger reaction with Chile I’ll have it, “said the minister.
