EU-Mercosur trade deal: ‘A win-win situation for both sides’, says Fernando Sampaio

In an exclusive interview with ViEUws, Executive Director of the Association of Brazilian beef exporters, Fernando Sampaio talks to AGRA FACTS journalist Rose O’Donovan about his country’s highly-efficient and competitive agricultural sector. He provides details of the Brazilian Roundtable on Sustainable Livestock that was established in July 2015, where resource efficiency & sustainable intensification are at the top of the agenda. Speaking a couple weeks before leaked details emerged about the EU market access offer to the Mercosur countries – Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay – Sampaio said there was a place for beef imports into the EU to satisfy demand and also keep prices down. A bilateral deal would be a “win-win” situation for both sides, he concluded, saying he sees great opportunities for European farm products on the Latin American market.
