    Brazil agribusiness exports, the locomotive of foreign trade

     Brazil exported 54.3 million tons of soybeans; 28.9 million tons of corn; 11.9 million tons of cellulose and the 2 million tons of coffee beans last year

    Brazil's total agricultural exports slid 8.8% to US$88.2 billion in 2015, compared to the previous year, despite record sales of soybeans, corn, chicken, coffee and cellulose, officials said. The drop in sales was caused by falling prices for the commodities Brazil sells on the global market, Foreign Agribusiness Relations Secretary Tatiana Palermo said.
