The Brazilian Government received with great satisfaction the decision of South African health authorities of reopening the country's market to the export of Brazilian boneless meat, following joint efforts of the Ministries of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply and of Foreign Affairs. The measure will allow the normalization of the bilateral trade of this product and will imply the lifting of embargos imposed in 2005 and 2012, due to the occurrence of the foot-and-mouth disease and atypical cases of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in Brazil.

The reopening of the market is distinguished not only by the business prospects it represents for the sales of Brazilian boneless beef, given the significant potential of that market (50 million inhabitants and a GDP of US$341 billion), but also for confirming the effectiveness of the national sanitary control and the quality and health of the Brazilian product, already recognized by other trade partners.

This decision adds to the recent opening of the South African market to Brazilian exports of pork for processing: both, together, will contribute to the generation of employnment and income, through the increase and diversification of Brazilian agribusiness exports.
