Brazil's President-elect Jair Bolsonaro announced Wednesday that Congresswoman Tereza Cristina Dias will be his new agriculture minister.

Dias, from the country's mid-western state of Mato Grosso do Sul, is the first female cabinet member announced by Bolsonaro and the second woman ever to head Brazil's Agriculture Ministry.

The announcement came after a meeting of the transition team.

Dias' home state has a strong agro-business presence. The future agriculture minister is an agronomist and the current leader of the Agribusiness Parliamentary Front (FPA).

So far, Bolsonaro has announced four other cabinet members, including Paulo Guedes, who will head the new Economy Ministry.
