CONCENTRATION AND INTERNATIONALIZATION OF BRAZILIAN AGRIBUSINESS EXPORTERS

By using an unprecedently disaggregated data set, this article analyzes rapid concentration and internationalization (the growing presence of multinational firms) in the agribusiness of Brazil in the past decade. This article: (1) analyzes the concentration of exports over the 1990s of seven subsectors; (2) analyzes internationalization, and mergers and acquisitions in these and other subsectors; (3) describes the managerial strategies adopted by firms to cope with the increased competition arising from concentration and internationalization; (4) discusses the particular conditions in each of the major subsectors; and (5) draws managerial and policy implications in an era of globalization.
