Argentinian beef shipments to China resumed

The Argentinian government decided to unlock beef shipments to its main market, China. The decision by the Argentine government following negotiations with producers to lift all restrictions on sales of meat to foreign customers aims at recovering some of the political support lost at Sept. 12's Mandatory, Open and Simultaneous Primary (PASO) elections, informs MercoPress.
The measure will allow sales to China to resume immediately, something that had already happened with shipments to the European Union to comply with the Hilton Quota and kosher meat for the Israeli market. "In this way, we solve a problem raised by the governors and entities and also the situation of the slaughterhouses that had not been able to participate in the negotiations," Agriculture and Livestock Minister Julián Domínguez explained.
In 2020, China accounted for 70% of Argentinian beef exports and that situation remains controversial as the government decided to ban some products from export in order to supply the domestic market and to lower the prices. However, the measure applies only to China, as exports for other parts of the world are to be resumed next year, according to official sources.
