China gives green light to Costa Rican meat exports
Monday, April 30, 2012
China has given the green light to imports of Costa Rican meat, Agriculture Minister Gloria Abraham said.
Speaking at an agribusiness expo in Costa Rica, Abraham said three meat processing plants that met the requirements of China and secured certification now have gained entry into the Chinese market.
The minister said she was pleased by the "positive effect" that the entry into the Chinese market would have on the country's meat producing sector, which is just beginning to emerge from a crisis caused by several years of depressed prices.
