The Aché Laboratories Group signed an agreement with the Government of Pernambuco to purchase a 25-hectare plot located within the Suape Port Industrial Complex. The company is to invest R$500m in the construction of a drug factory and an on-site distribution center. The works are due to start in February 2018 and will last 10 months. Aché Laboratories believes that the new plant will be a platform for it to grow its exports, hence the decision to choose the Suape Port Industrial Complex as its location. Last Thursday (01/06), the Senate approved provisional measure to grant salary rises to federal employees and to redefine roles within the civil service. The approval came after pressure from tax auditors, who refused to work for several days in May at all airports and ports in the country. In Santa Catarina, for example, such employees held a 4-day strike last week, releasing only products such as medicines, perishable cargo and those judicially required for release. From June 9, Russia’s Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision Service is to suspend shipments of meat and cheeses from 31 Brazilian companies. The reason for the restrictions is a “warning given by a Brazilian institution”. In March, Russia suspended imports of Brazilian poultry and eggs due to bird flu.
