Brazil – 150th Anniversary of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply – MAPA completes in 2010 its 150th anniversary.

A commemorative stamp was issued by the Brazilian Postal Service (Empresa Brasileira de Correios e Telégrafos – ECT) as a recognition of a century and a half of great achievements by the Ministry .

The stamp, displayed in this post,  synthesizes through the colors of the national flag, “the feeling of being Brazilian and pride for the work done through many decades on behalf of the Brazilian people and the primary sector of Brazil.”

And the stamp´s slogan “150 years supplying food to Brazil and producing for the world” emphazises the importance of our agriculture, domestically and internationally.
