More US agri products eligible for export to China

In recent weeks, China updated its lists of US facilities eligible to export. This means that more US agricultural products are eligible for export to China than ever before. The USDA and the Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) today announced additional progress in the implementation of the US-China phase one trade deal, entered into force February 14, 2020.

“China is a market of tremendous potential for US agriculture and these actions will help US exporters expand their sales there,” said US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue. “We look forward to continued cooperative work with China on implementation of Phase One commitments, and immediate increases in US exports of all manner of agricultural products.”

“China has worked with the United States to implement measures that will provide greater access for US producers and exporters to China’s growing food and agricultural markets,” said USTR Robert Lighthizer. “Under President Trump’s leadership, we fully expect this agreement to be a success.”

US blueberries and California Hass avocados can now be exported to China as well. In 2019, China imported a record volume of fresh fruits and vegetables exceeding $8.6 billion.
