 MOFCOM: The escalation of economic and trade frictions will inevitably interfere with the importation of American pork by enterprises


Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, May 23, the Ministry of Electronic Commerce spokesman peak 23, said that the United States is one of the main sources of pork imports in China. Affected by the recent escalation of economic and trade frictions, domestic enterprisesexpectations of the US market are unstable, which will inevitably interfere with normal business activities.

According to reports from the United States Department of Agriculture, China recently cancelled thousands of tons of pork imports from the United States. Does this mean that China will reduce pork imports from the United States?

Peak said that Chinas pork imports, in addition to the need to meet the relevant inspection and quarantine requirements, there are no restrictions or management measures. Enterprises can operate independently and free trade according to market supply and demand, price, quality and other conditions.

According to Chinese customs statistics, pork imports in China mainly come from Germany, Spain, the United States, Canada, Denmark, Brazil, the Netherlands, France and other 15 countries.

According to the summit, since the second half of 2018, domestic pork imports and pork production declined. The import of meat in China showed a growth trend. In the first quarter of this year, the total import of pork, cattle, chicken and mutton was 1 million 112 thousand tons, an increase of 11.6% over the same period last year.

It is expected that Chinas meat imports will increase further in the later period. Peak said that the United States is one of the main sources of pork imports in China. Whether to buy American pork or not is an independent market behavior of enterprises.
