BrazilWorks congratulates both governments for working out this important agreement that may open the way toward greater bilateral cooperation on agriculture and trade.
In my role as international advisor to ABRAPA I wish to thank President Gilson Pinesso, the ABRAPA directorate and management, and Haroldo Cunha of the Brazilian Cotton Institute for such an historic opportunity to make my own modest contribution to this outcome. Gilson Pinesso is a remarkable agricultural producer, but his leadership and political insight have produced an historic agreement that may change bilateral relations for some time.
Gilson e ABRAPA muito obrigado!
In the coming days and weeks, BrazilWorks will offer a bit more analysis of the agreement and how it will move relations forward.

International Advisor to ABRAPA
