Brazil continues to work to diversify its export basket. From the beginning of the year until now, there were six new market openings in addition to the other 108 held since 2019. The country also managed to update the health certificate that limited the age of cattle sold to Saudi Arabia. On February 11, three openings were confirmed: Chile authorized the purchase of Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) eggs from Brazil; Colombia confirmed an opening to import Brazilian rice seeds; and Cambodia accepted the entry of Brazilian pork and meat products. At the beginning of February, Chile had opened its market to import rodents for exhibition in zoos and for use as pets. In addition, in January the Argentine market was opened for the purchase of bovine guts and bladders from Brazil. This information was obtained from the Department of Trade and International Relations of the Ministry of Agriculture. The first opening of the year was the Saudi Arabian market for the export of sheep meat.
