Approximately one month following the Presidential Summit, the U.S. and China reached consensus on addressing issues in areas including agricultural trade, financial services, investment, and energy. 

Today, we can report that U.S. Beef is going to China after one more round of technical negations concludes. 

According to the Department of Commerce, approximately one month following the Presidential Summit between the U.S. and China, the two countries have reached consensus on addressing issues in areas including agricultural trade, financial services, investment, and energy. 

The U.S. Department of Commerce Fact sheet states that, "following one more round of technical consultations between the United States and China, China is to allow imports of U.S. beef on conditions consistent with international food safety and animal health standards and consistent with the 1999 Agricultural Cooperation Agreement, beginning as soon as possible but no later than July 16, 2017."

The Northern Ag Network spoke with leaders from two livestock associations about this opportunity for U.S. cattle producers. 

Fred Wacker is a rancher from Miles City, Montana. He serves as the 1st Vice President of the Montana Stockgrowers Association and is a member of the NCBA. He, along with the other industry leaders have worked hard to open the door for U.S. cattlemen to have access to China. Click the Link below to listen to his comments.


The U.S. Cattlemen's Association's Jess Peterson comments on the new opportunity for U.S. beef producers. U.S. beef access to China remains a priority to USCA and the industry and USCA will continue to work with Congress and Administration officials as these negotiations continue to move forward.  


National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Craig Uden today issued the following statement regarding the announcement from the White House that an agreement has been reached that will restore U.S. beef access to China:

 

“After being locked out of the world’s largest market for 13 years, we strongly welcome the announcement that an agreement has been made to restore U.S. beef exports to China. It’s impossible to overstate how beneficial this will be for America’s cattle producers, and the Trump Administration deserves a lot of credit for getting this achieved. We look forward to providing nearly 1.4 billion new customers in China with the same safe and delicious U.S. beef that we feed our families. I look forward to the day when we can serve President Trump and President Xi a dry-aged American-made New York strip in Beijing.”
