Paraná is the fourth largest exporter in the country

Paraná became the fourth largest exporter in the country in 2017. The state has not held this position since 2012. Foreign sales totaled US $ 18.08 billion, 19.2% more than in the previous year.

As a result, the state was ahead of Rio Grande do Sul (US $ 17.79 billion) and behind only São Paulo (US $ 50.66 billion), Minas Gerais (US $ 25.35 billion) and Rio de January (US $ 21.71 billion). The data comes from the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (Secex) of the Ministry of Development, Industry and Commerce (MDIC).

The record harvest of grains and the resumption of exports from the industry have made Paraná the best result in billing in shipments since 2013 (US $ 18.2 billion). “It was a combination of favorable factors. On the one hand the good production of the field, which increased the exports of soy and corn. On the other hand, the resumption of exports of manufactured goods, which has more added value and which have guaranteed more revenue for the state’s foreign trade, “says Julio Suzuki Júnior, director-president of the Paranaense Institute for Economic and Social Development (Ipardes), linked to the Secretariat Planning and General Coordination. Exports from Paraná grew more than in Brazil (17.55%).

The forecast for 2018, according to Suzuki Junior, is that exports continue to show positive results, driven mainly by the performance of industrialized products.

RECALL – Foreign sales of soybeans increased 40% in 2017, from US $ 2.95 billion to US $ 4.14 billion. The state’s main export product, the grain accounted for 22.9% of state shipment revenue last year.

Sales of poultry in natura – the country’s second most exported product – grew 11.5% from $ 2.08 billion to $ 2.32 billion.

One of the great highlights of the year was the pulp export, which took a leap with the production of the Klabin factory in Ortigueira, in the Campos Gerais. Exports increased 79.3% – from US $ 308.96 million to US $ 553.84 million.

VEHICLES AND TRACTORS – Automobile shipments, boosted mainly by demand from Argentina, grew 55% – from R $ 603.65 million to US $ 935.47 million. Already tractors passed in the period, from US $ 240.5 million to US $ 335.5 million, up 39.5%.

Exports of auto parts increased 39.3%, from US $ 200.7 million to US $ 279.6 million. Exports of various metallurgical products, in turn, increased 53%, from US $ 84.9 million to US $ 130 million.

MARKETS – China remained the main buyer of Paraná products in 2017, with a 23.37% share (US $ 4.67 billion). Argentina came in second place and accounted for 10.13% (US $ 2.05 billion) and the United States, third, with 5.15% (US $ 890.8 million).
