It underlined its role in preventing "criminal and predatory exploitation" of Brazil's resources, and said "the national economy would suffer, especially agrobusiness, from possible reprisals by importing countries".

The president-elect, who is backed by Brazil's powerful agribusiness lobby, had floated the idea in the past, saying, "Let's be clear: the future ministry will come from the productive sector". We've collected Foreign Policy's best articles on Bolsonaro's victory and where he'll go from here.

On Thursday, Bolsonaro is due to meet with crusading anti-corruption judge Sergio Moro, who led the so-called "Car Wash" probe snaring big names in Brazil's political class and opening the door for Bolsonaro's tough-on-corruption campaign. Dubbed "the Trump of the Tropics", Bolsonaro is a hard-line politician who campaigned against crime and corruption.

Brazil's right-wing candidate Bolsonaro of the Social Liberal Party won the country's presidential run-off on Sunday, with a 55.13 percent of the valid votes against 44.87 percent for his rival Fernando Haddad of the left-leaning Workers' Party.

Bolsonaro was elected Sunday and will take office january 1.

Despite relatively robust legal protections, Brazil is already the deadliest place for environmentalists, with pressure group Global Witness recording 57 deaths of people protecting land there previous year. Bolsonaro has publicly mocked women and their appearance - once telling a female lawmaker that, "I wouldn't rape you because you don't deserve it" - mocked minority groups, threatened to jail his political opponents and warned that immigrants are eroding Brazilian culture.

Bolsonaro has vowed to turn up pressure on Venezuela's authoritarian leftist government to hold free elections that could stem the flow of refugees into neighbouring Brazil and Colombia, also governed by a conservative president.

Onyx Lorenzoni, a fellow congressman whom Bolsonaro has tapped as chief of staff, told journalists that Guedes would be responsible for structuring the government's relationship with an independent, autonomous central bank with targets.

Brazil's democratic institutions have proven stable, many said, downplaying Mr. Bolsonaro's ability to undermine these institutions.

Sanders said the United States values its longstanding relationship with Brazil. Not to mention his propensity to praise Brazil's former military dictatorship.

In his first interviews as president-elect, Bolsonaro said he hoped to start passing "at least part" of his proposed pension reform this year.

Bolsonaro is due to travel to Brasilia next week to meet with outgoing President Michel Temer, said Bebianno.
