Sinn Féin welcome China pork exports

24 November, 2017 - by Declan McAleer


Sinn Féin Agriculture spokesperson Declan McAleer has welcomed news that pork producers from the North are able to begin exporting to China after the final administration processes were completed.

Declan McAleer said:

"This is great news for the industry and is a clear sign of the global confidence in our agri-food industry, which is world standard.

"The opening of exports to China will create and protect jobs, and inject optimism into the industry, which is facing many challenges, the greatest of which is Brexit.

"This is the culmination of years of hard work by our producers, the Foods Standard Agency and DAERA.

"During my tenure on the DARD committee from 2012 to 2016 this was a key issue, it was also a top priority of the former Agriculture Minister Michelle O'Neill who visited China on three occasions to promote our pork industry and open trade opportunities."
