Brazil's aims to resume beef exports to China



Carlos Favaro, Brazil's Agriculture Minister, said he is moving forward a planned visit to China to discuss resuming beef exports to that country, after shipments were halted following a case of mad cow's disease detected in Brazil, US News reported.


Favaro said he will make the trip the China before Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's March 28 scheduled visit.


Following the discovery of an unusual case of mad cow disease in the Brazilian state of Para in February, shipments of beef to China were immediately suspended.


A Brazilian government official said the Brazilian government anticipates that beef exports to China will resume in the coming days and is preparing to ask for a revision of the protocol that led to the ban.
