According to the data provided by the Arab-Brazil Chamber of Commerce, India stands as the leading food supplier to the League of Arab Nations for the first time in 15 years succeeding Brazil despite the disruption in trade caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Brazil was one of the world's most important trading partners for Arab countries. However, its market suffered due to the coronavirus pandemic, which caused the Brazilian market to collapse and its routes to be closed for months.
