    While any investment in our country is welcome, the truth is that $6-million is so insignificant. I first read the full article (on another site) and thought that it might be interesting but then i realized how small operations would be.

    Brazilian congressmen establish Brazil-Algeria parliamentary group


    Representatives established the Brazil-Algeria Parliamentary Group last week in Brasília

    São Paulo - Brazilian representatives are also working on closer ties between Brazil and Algeria. On Wednesday, 17, the Brazil-Algeria Parliamentary Group was established, with the objective of promoting the exchange of experiences between parliament members from both countries and also strengthening cultural and trade relations. The Group is presided by representative Eduardo Campos and Renato Casagrande is the vice president.

    According to Casagrande, apart from commercial ties, Brazil also has close relations with Algeria as the former governor of Pernambuco, Miguel Arraes, who died last year, lived in the country in exile for 14 years. "One of the objectives is expansion of trade relations between both countries. But the other is fraternal. It is a feeling of solidarity and gratitude as Algeria housed Brazilian political leaders during the military dictatorship," explained Casagrande.

    Since last year, Brazil and Algeria have been seeking closer diplomatic relations. In 2005, the Algerian president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, visited Brazil. This year, it was the turn of president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva to visit Algeria. Apart from that, in November, the minister of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, Luiz Fernando Furlan, headed a trade mission to the country.

    At the occasion, the minister stated that exports from Brazil to Algeria may rise by US$ 500 million in two years. Nowadays, Brazil exports US$ 384.3 million whereas the country imports US$ 2.82 billion. One of the objectives of the Brazilian government is to level the trade balance.

    The main products that Brazil sends to the African Arab country are soy, sugar, iron, meats, vehicles and milk. From that country, Brazil imports oil, gas and naphtha for the petrochemical industry. In 2005, in comparison to the previous year, there was a 10.3% increase in exports from Brazil to Algeria. From Algeria here, the increase was 47.3%.

    This year, a year of intensified diplomatic relations, nine bilateral acts have already been signed, according to the Ministry of Foreign Relations. With the establishment of the Brazil-Algeria Parliamentary Group, the idea is to promote cooperation between the Legislative and Judiciary powers.

    "We want to develop joint studies, to help in business roundtables, to simplify contacts. In short, to be a bridge between both countries," explained Casagrande, the vice president of the group that includes 65 congressmen. "We cannot forget that Algeria is the second largest country in Africa and has the seventh greatest natural gas reserves in the world," recalled the congressman.

    To Michel Alaby, secretary general of the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, who participated in the release of the Parliamentary Group, the idea is to seek a political-legislative understanding to sponsor partnerships and joint investment.

    "Apart from that, in the near future we want to promote the signing of a treaty to avoid dual Income Tax for companies operating in both countries, and also to define legal criteria for reciprocal protection treaties for investment, together with the (Brazil -Algeria) joint committee," explained Alaby. The Algerian ambassador in Brasília, M'hamed Achache, participated in the establishment of the group.

    Brazilian beef for Algeria

    São Paulo - Brazilian cattle beef is going to be promoted in Algeria at the beginning of next month. The Brazilian Beef Industry and Exporters Association (Abiec) and Federation of Muslim Associations of Brazil (Fambras), responsible for halal slaughter in the country, are going to participate in Algiers International Fair, to take place between June 1 and 8 in the capital of the African Arab country. They will participate in a stand organized by the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.

    According to the technical spokesperson at the Abiec, Luciana Luiz Casanova, the trip will serve to show how halal slaughter, which follows Muslim rules, is executed in Brazil and to show the quality of the cattle beef produced in the country. Brazil already sells cattle beef to Algeria. Last year exports totalled US$ 108 million, with growth of 69% over the previous year. "We want to establish the economic integration that already exists," stated Luciana, who participated in a preparatory meeting for the fair at the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce yesterday.

    Algeria was one of the countries that stopped importing meat from Brazil due to cases of foot and mouth disease registered in the country last year. In March this year, however, imports were partially started again. The Arab country returned to buying boneless meat from Brazil, except for that from 15 states. Algeria had not officially embargoed Brazilian meat, but was not granting import licenses. Algerian participation in Brazilian cattle beef purchases was 3.1% in 2005.

    At Algiers International Fair, the Abiec and Fambras are going to talk to visitors about the characteristics of the Brazilian cattle herd, covering the raising of cattle on grazing ground, something normal in the country and that makes the meat healthier. Abiec has a Brazilian cattle beef marketing program called Brazilian Beef, also to be showed in Algeria. According to the figures supplied by the Abiec, the Algerians imported just US$ 4.2 million in cattle beef between January and April this year.

    According to the secretary general of the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, Michel Alaby, Algeria is a potential market for food produced in Brazil. "Foods represent 22% of Algerian imports," stated Alaby. Last year Algeria imported a total of US$ 22.5 billion in products in general. The Arab country's main trade partners are France, Italy, Germany, Spain, the United States, China and Turkey.

    The Brazilian stand at Algiers International Fair will include, apart from Abiec and Fambras, the Brazilian Furniture Industry Association (Abimóvel), Tangará, a producer of powdered milk, Starret, a maker of tools as well as Rimo and Divicar, furniture producers. The fair is visited by importers from various countries in the region, mainly from Africa.

    Last year, Algiers International Fair received one million visitors, among them 15,000 businessmen and businesswomen. The fair had exhibitors from 35 countries in Europe, America and Africa. There were 1,300 foreign and 600 Algerian exhibitors. The fair covers an area of one million square metres.

    Brazilian beef is promoted with a barbecue at the Sheraton Hotel:

    São Paulo - Brazilian beef is going to be promoted in Algiers, capital of Algeria, this weekend. The Brazilian Beef Industry and Exporters Association (Abiec), with support from the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex), is going to hold a barbecue on Sunday (18th) for 250 guests, amongst entrepreneurs, government officials, importers, representatives of slaughterhouses and restaurants. The event will take place at the Sheraton Hotel.

    "Algeria is an excellent partner for Brazil. We want to show retribution for this partnership and strengthen relations," stated the executive-director at Abiec, Antonio Jorge Camardelli, who is in Algiers. According to him, the barbecue in Algeria is part of the entity's calendar of events. This is the first time that Abiec will hold a barbecue in Algeria, but in Egypt, for example, which is one of the main importers of Brazilian beef, there have been three barbecues already.

    According to Camardelli, before the barbecue there will be a trade meeting, which will allow for a direct contact between representatives of slaughterhouses and importers. In May this year Brazilian beef exports to Algeria had an increase of 84.8% in relation to the same period in 2005. There were US$ 24 millions worth of the product shipped during that month.

    According to Camardelli, this increase is due to the restart of imports of the product, which were embargoed by more than 40 countries at the end of last year, when some Brazilian states registers points of the foot and mouth disease.

    The Brazilian restaurant to prepare the barbecue in Algeria is Barbacoa, renown in Brazil in the preparation of the meal. There will be served about 200 kilograms of rump steak, striploin and tenderloin.
