MOSCOW, 28 Oct./strong>. Prospects of increasing trade between Russia and Brazil became the main subject, held in Brazil, negotiations between the delegation of the Russian Union of Industrialists and entrepreneurs and the Ministry of agriculture of Brazil, according to a press release from the Union.

“The main issues of the meeting was the potential for expansion of trade between Russia and Brazil, as well as the need to enhance business cooperation between our countries, particularly in the agricultural sector”, — said the head of the delegation, Executive Vice-President RSPP Victor Skulls.

In turn, Secretary for international relations of the Ministry of agriculture of Brazil Tatiana Palermo said that Brazil considers Russia not only as one of the main partners in the sphere of trade of agricultural products and fertilizers, but also as one of the potential investors in infrastructure, and expects the participation of Russian banks and business structures in financing to Brazilian agricultural producers.

As noted in the RSPP, the initiator of the meeting was the Board member of RSPP, Deputy head of the Business Council “Russia-Brazil” Director General of JSC PhosAgro Andrey Guryev. PhosAgro is one of the largest participants in the trade turnover between Russia and Brazil, which imports about 60% of mineral fertilizers from Russia. So, PhosAgro for the last five years has increased the supply of fertilizers to the market in 2.5 times — up to 1.2 million tons last year.

“Joint projects can be of immense benefit to the economies of the two countries, because they effectively complement each other: Brazil supplies are needed in our country agricultural products, and we, in turn, shipped back environmentally friendly fertilizers for its cultivation,” said Guriev
