The Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva welcomed the new President of Embrapa during the inauguration ceremony, last July.  He said that “the mark of Embrapa has always to be the technical expertise, no other” and that “Brazil is a plural country and Embrapa has to be plural and capable to attend many, as well as to increase its contribution to the world.” President Lula spoke about the expectations for the new management and one of his most emphatic remarks was that “the internationalization of Embrapa is not only a desire for the government, but a state policy, which will be a constant in the future.”  Read more (in Portuguese) here.
