Brazil and USA have “mature” relationship in agribusiness, says American ambassador


Among the debates on the environment, patents and competition, the American ambassador, Todd Chapman, said that the commercial relationship between Brazil and the United States is “mature” and that both countries can move forward together in the expansion of agribusiness, despite being competitors in several markets.

Chapman participated in a debate on the forum “Super Agro Brasil 2021“, organized by EXAM this Thursday, 8 (see the complete schedule and the panels happening at this moment).

In his speech, the ambassador stated that Brazil and the USA are historical partners in the development of science and technology in agriculture. He also cited Brazil’s “green revolution” in the 1960s and 1970s, which greatly increased the productivity of Brazilian agriculture, and the collaboration of the USA in the formation of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa).

“Our American companies are here, sometimes for more than 100 years, working with Brazilians in very strong partnerships,” said Chapman.
