UFA, July 10. /TASS/. Brazil confirmed its interest to increase the purchases of grain, fish and fertilizers from Russia, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply of Brazil Katia Abreu said Friday in an interview with RBC channel.
"At the moment we import wheat from countries that are not our strategic partners. Since Russia gives us the priority positions in other areas, Russian suppliers have a very chance to take a good share of the market," Abreu said.
"We buy quite a lot of fish, despite the fact that we have 12% of fresh water in the world. The prospects here are also very high. Russia also provides 25%-30% of all fertilizer deliveries. And many more areas have potential," she said.
After Russia introduced good embargo, supplies from Brazil to Russia increased by 30%, the Minister continued. Primarily increased Brazilian exports of pork, which replaces the European banned pork due to the epidemic of African swine fever in EU.
"In the future we would like to expand our cooperation in the fruit export. I believe that dairy products will also become the most important item in our export," Abreu said.
As TASS reported earlier, on Wednesday the Russian Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev and a delegation from Brazil held a meeting in Moscow on strengthening the trade of goods in the agricultural sector and cooperation in agricultural science. In particular, Russia and Brazil reached the agreement on the deliveries of Russian wheat to Brazil.
