South America - Question and Answer

Which country is the world's largest exporter of sugar?  


Chili
Brazil
Cuba
Argentina

Answer:

Brazil tops the list of sugarcane producers, with an annual production of 739,300 thousand metric tons. The South-Central region of Brazil is accountable for more than 90 percent of this national production output. Sugar is the main product sourced from the sugarcane cultivated in this country. However, production of ethanol from residual molasses is now growing more popular, as ethanol is used as a fuel to power automobiles, which Brazilians are owning in larger numbers. Recently, the country has challenged sugar subsidies given by the Thai Government to the sugarcane producers at the World Trade Organization (WTO). These subsidies are likely to affect the global sugar pricing and Brazil's sugarcane market share everywhere.
