Five new foreign markets were opened on Tuesday the 19th for Brazilian exports of live livestock: Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, which are member states of the Eurasian Economic Union (UEEA).
Over the past five years, these countries have imported more than US$200 million annually in live livestock from other suppliers.
The import permit was granted during a mission by representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAPA) to Moscow, which was supported by the Brazilian Embassy.

In 2022, Brazil exported just over US$1.8 billion in agribusiness products to the EU, the most important of which were: soybeans (48%), raw sugar (16%), beef (9%), and green coffee (7% ).
The opening of new markets is the result of a joint effort between the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAPA) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE).
