Ammon News –

Agriculture Minister Khaled Hneifat and his Brazilian counterpart Marcos Montes agreed on Sunday to increase trade in agricultural products between the two countries.

During a meeting held between the two ministers, Hneifat said that despite the scarcity of resources, the Kingdom exports its agricultural products to more than 60 countries around the world and is a partner in achieving global food security, which requires concerted efforts to achieve this due to the protracted crises in the world and their impact on food.

He expressed hope that the visit will help increase trade between the two countries and encourage the Brazilian side to import high-quality Jordanian products such as dates, olive oil and fertilizers.

For his part, the Brazilian minister reaffirmed his country’s openness to cooperation with the Kingdom, indicating his willingness to increase Jordanian exports of fertilizers, dates and olive oil in the coming period.

During the meeting, coordination was made for a Jordanian private sector delegation to travel to Brazil next week to participate in the review of markets in both countries.

The Brazilian delegation visited the National Agricultural Research Center (NARC), the Jordan Cooperative Corporation (JCC), major fertilizer companies and private sector institutions in the Kingdom to strengthen joint cooperation and increase the volume of Jordanian exports to the Brazilian market.

A number of livestock issues, such as veterinary health certificates and regulatory instructions, were also addressed.
