Spain: Spain Gets Green Light to Ship Fresh Pork and Table Grapes to China

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Spain in late November 2018 concluded with the signature of two protocols that will allow Spain to export fresh pork, value-added pork products and table grapes to China. The new protocol on pork will likely increase the value of Spanish pork exports to China. However, any significant increases in trade volume will be primarily fueled by increased Chinese demand for meat, and in response to recent outbreaks of African Swine fever in China. Meanwhile, new access for Spanish grapes will contribute to Spanish fruit producer’s efforts to diversify their export destinations to other markets outside the European Union.
