barzilBrazil is located on the eastern Atlantic coast of South America, enjoying the status of being the largest country in the Latin America and South American region. The country once was a colony of the Empire of Portugal. Brazil’s population is about 198 million, and the name of its capital is Brasilia. The official language is Portuguese. Administratively, Brazil is a federation comprising 26 autonomous States (headed by governors) and Municipalities (headed by mayors). Due to its fast growing and impressive economy based on natural resources, industry and agriculture, Brazil is presently considered as an economic powerhouse in the world. In spite of its distinguished economic standing, however, a large number of Brazilians still remain poor.

I am a Zambian who has always admired how Brazil has evolved in Agricultural activities and how it has developed and benefited the people of Brazil. In Zambia the Government under the leadership of His Excellency the President Ediga Chagwa Lungu has spelled out a well articulated program of diversification from traditional dependence on Copper production to Agriculture. We have vast land and water bodie suitable for massive Agricultural development. I would therefore envisage a serious partnership with the Brazilian Government to support our diversification into Agriculture considering the strides Brazil has made in this sector.
I therefore propose partnership and help from the Brazilian Government to help our country develop its Agricultural potential that can feed the entire Southern,Central and Eastern Africa.
I am prepared to be fully involved in such a project if it can be initiated by the two Governments.
