Roberto Rodrigues, former Brazilian Minister of Agriculture from January 2003 to June 2006, Coordinator of the Getulio Vargas Foundation Agribusiness Center (GV Agro), is an agricultural producer and an agricultural engineer by training, following in the steps of his father and grandfather. His sons have continued the family tradition. He is also a Professor (currently on leave), holding the Chair of Rural Economics at the São Paulo State University in Jaboticabal.
A strong supporter of the cooperative movement, Minister Rodrigues chaired the Brazilian Cooperatives Organization, the World Committee on Agricultural Cooperatives and the International Cooperative Alliance.

A well-known agribusiness leader, Roberto Rodrigues served as President of the prestigious Brazilian Rural Society and the Brazilian Agribusiness Association. He is also a member of the Board of dozens of Brazilian producer’s associations.
