SAO PAULO (Reuters) – The minister of Foreign Affairs of Brazil, Carlos França, spoke this Thursday with the minister of Foreign Affairs of China, Wang Yi, about the resumption of Brazilian beef imports by the Asian country.
China is traditionally the main destination for Brazilian meat, but a suspension of shipments to the Asian country was announced in early September, after the confirmation of two atypical cases of the disease “mad cow disease”, one in Mato Grosso and the other in Minas General.
As these were atypical cases, which do not pose health risks, the market believed in a short return in shipments, which has not yet occurred.
In a videoconference, the ministers “talked about opening and diversifying markets, including the resumption of Brazilian beef exports,” said Itamaraty on Twitter.
According to the post on the social network, “the Chinese chancellor believes the matter will be resolved quickly.”
Itamaraty also mentioned that a bilateral meeting will discuss the topic this Thursday to “refer the matter”.
