HISTORICAL: FOR THE FIRST TIME, ARGENTINA WILL EXPORT PORK TO CHINA

China is one of the world's top consumers and Argentina announced it had struck a deal with Chinese authorities that would allow it to begin exporting pork to the Asian giant from 25 of the country’s meat-packing plants. The rapid and continuing spread of the African swine fever (ASF) in China has raised concerns about a looming pork shortage in the world’s top producer and consumer of the meat.Last year, Argentine exports to China reached us$ 3.48 billion, more than 86% of which were from the agricultural sector.  The south american country has been pushing to increase agricultural trade with China to help bolster the country's trade balance amid increasing volatility of its peso currency.Argentina also has been pushing to export higher-margin domestically processed soy meal to China. Meanwhile, U.S. pork currently faces tariffs of 62% in China, which includes 50% punitive tariffs due to trade disputes between the two countries. (ICE BUENOS AIRES)
