Paraná grew in Agro by facilitating dialogue and partnerships

According to the Secretary of Agriculture of Paraná, Norberto Ortigara, the state can grow and become one of the largest in Brazilian Agribusiness thanks to the environment of dialogue, partnership and collective action that has been built. With this, it was possible not only to implement cutting-edge technology, but also to increase production and increase the added value of Paraná products.

“We captured 13.5% of Agro exports in the country last year. This was possible due to the favorable environment we built, with dialogue and the very good partnerships we formed here: private cereal producers, industries, public research, cooperatives, foundations and farmers who are increasingly prepared to do their part. The State of Paraná has a good capacity to intervene and enhance this”, explained the secretary in an exclusive interview with Portal Agrolink during Safratec 2017.

According to him, another secret of Paraná is to export not only its primary production, but also products with increasingly greater added value. He also highlights the diversity of cultures, which made it possible to mitigate the effects of “this perverse crisis that is plaguing Brazil, which is ethical, moral and economic, with a long period of recession. We now hope that it will get back on track, that the reforms will be carried out, and that this will help to 'boom' our Agro”.

 

“Once again Agro saved Brazil. There was a reduction in the trade surplus, but even so we remained above US$ 71 billion, which ensured that the Brazilian balance produced a profit of US$ 46 billion. And Agro is what boosted the economy, which is in bad shape. We are kind of alongside that, and we continue to grow”, he celebrates.

“Paraná grew in exports, registering US$ 15 billion last year. Of this total, 75% comes from Agro, which is our Silicon Valley. We have the capacity to produce grains on a large scale, our way, on small and medium-sized properties. We have a large production of animal proteins, mainly chicken and pork. In milk, we are heading towards second position in Brazil. In wood, we started growing again and exported cellulose heavily. We recovered the dynamism of the cassava sector, which was bankrupt, and accounted for 2/3 of the starch in Brazil”, he concludes.
