Serbian Minister of Agriculture Branislav Nedimovic has confirmed that Serbia exported the first container of beef to China on September 27, for the first time after 30 years, as reported on the website of the Government of Serbia.
Nedimovic stated for Radio Belgrade that the plan was for a container to be sent to China every two or three days and noted that the Government of Serbia would come out with a new program of support to investments in the food industry before the end of the year.
He said that the swine fever was spreading globally and pointed out that the Government of Serbia and the competent ministry had taken all measures to prevent the disease from entering Serbia.
– So far, everything is under control. I can’t guarantee that the disease will not appear, but we are planning measures in case it does – the minister pointed out.
