Brazilian Minister of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services Marcos Pereira said in January that Brazil could stand to gain from the United States’ move to a more protectionist trade stance under new U.S. President Donald Trump, especially in the agribusiness sector. He added that Brazil would hope to fill the gap the United States would leave by backing out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.
