Panama exports beef, pork and chicken to China

Panama City, Mar 15 (Prensa Latina) Panama began exporting beef, pork and chicken to China, a measure seen today as an alternative to the US refusal to review a Trade Promotion Agreement (TPC), in force since 2012.

According to the Minister of Agricultural Development, Augusto Valderrama, the Asian country opened the doors to some 10 companies from Panama so that they can export other national products such as fish oil and fishmeal.

For the president of the Association of Pig Farmers (ANAPOR), Carlos Pitty, this means hope to be able to grow and invest more, create more jobs and produce more pigs for national and international production.

Valderrama also indicated that the approval of processing plants is a help, since exporting to China creates a compensation, due to the fact that too many products are entering from the United States.
