USA and Brazil working together on ethanol in the Caribbean and Central America

Two teams from Brazil and the USA have been working together to launch several ethanol production projects in El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Saint Kitts and Nevis. Up to eight projects have been started under this new agreement. Funding will be provided with credits from the Inter-American Development Bank. Both the U.S. and Brazil are also thinking of expanding the partnership to more countries.
The ethanol announcements don't stop there. The U.S. and Brazil will continue research of the biofuel. A few months ago, a group of Brazilian scientists were in the U.S. to learn about the latest developments here and, in a few months time, America scientists will travel to Brazil to continue this work. Both countries also announced that "it's a great priority for them to promote and cooperate in biofuels."
