The Brazilian government received with satisfaction the news that 15 new markets were opened in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member countries—Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan—for Brazilian exports of bovine semen and embryos (both “in vivo” and “in vitro”).

This marks a significant commercial expansion for Brazilian agricultural products in the EAEU. Earlier this year, in May, exports of live pigs were authorized, followed by the approval for live cattle exports to Union members in September 2023.

These market openings are the result of intensified bilateral contacts with the EAEU, facilitated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (Mapa).

In the first four months of 2024, Brazil exported over US$325 million in agribusiness products to the EAEU, with key exports including soybeans, beef, green coffee, and raw sugar.

With these new markets in the EAEU, Brazilian agribusiness has achieved 61 market openings in 27 countries this year, bringing the total to 139 openings in 51 countries since President Lula’s term began.

These achievements are the result of joint efforts by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (Mapa) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE).
