These are the priorities of Ahmed Yousif Mohamed Elsiddig, the Sudanese ambassador in Brasília. Elsiddig visited the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce in the city of São Paulo.

“From my position, I will work for good relations in the agriculture and food production sectors. I would also like to see delegations from Sudan coming to Brazil and from Brazil to Sudan.

"I hope many agreements will come out of these [missions]. We are working hard to have Brazilian companies operating in the agriculture sector in Sudan”, he said.

The diplomat was welcomed by Michel Alaby, CEO of the Arab Chamber; Osmar Chohfi, vice-president of International Relations; Ramez Goussous, senior adviser of International and Institutional Relations; and Tamer Mansour, manager of Government Relations of the organization.

The new Sudanese ambassador also emphasized the importance of the work done by the Arab Chamber for the strengthening of ties between Brazil and the Middle East and North Africa countries.

“The Chamber is a very important organization for all Arab countries. The Chamber is the main pillar in the relations between Brazil and the Arab world and, for Sudan, we believe strongly that, through our cooperation with the Chamber, we can have a good and strong relationship with Brazil”, he said.
