Trase Infobrief 2 - MATOPIBA

Publication date


The region of MATOPIBA sits at the intersection of four Brazilian states - Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia - which are witnessing rapid agricultural expansion that is encroaching into the rich biodiversity of the Cerrado. Between 2010 and 2015, soy exports from MATOPIBA doubled, from 3.5 to 7.1 million tons. Trase reveals the trade dynamics driving this growth, highlighting the rapid emergence of new exporters across the region and rapid increase in demand from the Chinese market.
