For example, in 1986, Brazil and Argentina established a specific programme to support their cooperation in biotechnology, the Centre Brasileiro-Argentino de Biotechnologia, the goal of which was to foster training and joint research between the two countries. Currently, the two countries have the highest number of scientific co-publications in health biotechnology of any two developing nations. Brazil’s South-South cooperation has also focused on promoting economic and social development in Portuguese speaking Africa.Among others, Brazil has funded the construction of a new pharmaceutical plant in Mozambique that will make anti-retroviral drugs to battle HIV/AIDS in Southern Africa. There is a strong Latin American emphasis in Brazil’s South-South cooperation which includes cooperation with Cuba. The two countries signed their first biotechnology agreement in 1993 and have since then worked together on several initiatives.
