In brief: Brazil

*Brazil’s agriculture minister, Blairo Maggi, has said that Brazil could lift its 20% tariff on ethanol imports from the US if the US removes a ban on beef imports from Brazil. Last August, Brazil imposed a 20% tariff on imports of ethanol for quantities of over 600m litres per year. But minister Maggi signalled he was willing to renegotiate the current arrangement.
