Portugal and China Continue Strengthening Agricultural Trade Relationship

Country:
Portugal

Report Highlights: On May 28, 2019, the Portuguese Government signed an agreement with China to strengthen bilateral cooperation, and to harmonize and streamline procedures for agricultural exports. The Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Development is now working on market access for pear, table grapes, citrus, and a variety of meats. According to the Ministry, negotiations are already well advanced, and a Chinese mission is scheduled to visit Portugal in August 2019. Increasing Portuguese exports of food products to non-EU countries remains a priority for the current Portuguese Administration. This latest arrangement comes after China granted access for Portuguese table grapes and frozen pork in 2018.
