The announcement was made during a visit of Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo.

The Egyptian government recognised the equivalence of the Brazilian inspection system and elevated Brazil to the ‘pre-listing’ category for exporting animal proteins. The measure benefits at least 30 slaughterhouses that were waiting for this authorisation to ship products for more than 4 years.

Before this agreement, the renewal of the license of Brazilian establishments for export required in-person audits by Egyptian authorities, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (Mapa).
