Brazilian Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi will meet Russia's Deputy Agriculture Minister Evgueny Gromyko this Wednesday (19) to reinforce the Brazilian government's interest in expanding agricultural trade with Russia.

The Brazilian government has expressed its desire to expand meat (beef, pork and poultry) and dairy trade with Russia.

The Russian authorities, in turn, have expressed their intention to increase exports of fish, specially cod.

Brazil has already licensed three Russian fish establishments for imports, a number Russia wishes to expand by adding 108 fisheries producers to the list of accredited exporters.
