The head of China's Food Safety Agency will visit Belgrade April 22. We expect that between Serbia and China memorandum on food safety will be signed, which is the basis for the beginning of meat exports to the Chinese market, minister of agriculture Branislav Nedimovic, said for Politika.

It has been a year since the talks about placement of beef and lamb meat in China has begun, after the return of Prime Minister Vucic from this country. Despite skeptical comments that for Serbia it would be virtually impossible, Nedimovic assures that the conclusion of this transaction is close to an end.

He says there are three certified facilities for beef and lamb meat exports to China. Companies Djurdjevic, Neoplanta and Yuhor are waiting for the official announcement of the Chinese Food Safety Agency.

- - In the meantime, it was agreed that cooperation will be extended to exports of dairy products and some of our companies are interested in the opportunity. In some parts, Chinese food safety regulations are far stricter than the local ones – Nedimovic says and mentions that six Chinese companies are interested in meat processing which is coming from our country.

Nedimovic points out that for political reasons, China is interested in taking everything we can produce.
