BRAZIL AND ARGENTINA - The Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, Mendes Ribeiro Filho, has announced the agreement with Argentina's ambassador in Brasília, Luis María Kreckler, to restore the entry of various types of cuts of pork to Brazilians there.

There was also progress made by the Brazilian government on the imports of apple, pear and quince from Argentina.

In a statement, Ms Kreckler said the success of the negotiations conducted by the Ministry of Commerce, the Embassy of Argentina in Brazil and the Ministry of Agriculture, is the result of commitment to the highest levels of both governments to prioritise the channels of dialogue.

The Minister Mendes Ribeiro reported that the search for consensus and understanding is the best way for both countries to become stronger together than on their individual strengths.
