Brazil Strike Affecting Exports

Lorry drivers are blocking roads in a number of Brazilian states in protest against the high cost of fuel and tolls, BBC said. Deliveries of soya and corn to one of Brazil’s main ports, Paranagua, have slowed, the authorities said. The protest has affected production in many rural areas and has led to localized shortages of fuel. Farmers in the main meat, soya bean and milk producing regions of the country say their silos are full. The road leading to Brazil’s busiest port, Santos, is one of those blocked. Police clashed with drivers, fired tear gas and arrested seven people, but failed to clear access to the port.
