China agrees to lift 20-year old BSE ban on British beef

Mrs May revealed the Chinese had agreed to lift their BSE ban on British beef, introduced in 1996, during a keynote speech in Beijing.

 

The Prime Minister was in China on a three-day trade mission which aims to boost Sino-British relations in preparation for the post-Brexit era.

 

She said: “We will work together to explore all options to deliver a high level of ambition for the future trading relationship, and have today launched a joint trade and investment review to identify priorities for promoting growth in goods, services and investment.

“To pave the way for this ambitious future trading relationship, we have agreed new measures to improve market access in China and remove barriers to trade, including an agreement to lift the BSE ban on British beef exports within the next six months and to an agreement to allow exports of a broader range of dairy products.”

 

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told reporters UK produce, including regional cheeses, would be allowed in to ‘give Chinese consumers more options in accessing higher-quality agricultural products’.

 

“Sino-UK relations will not change because of the change in UK-EU relations”, he added.

 

“The two-way openness will deepen. And China’s door will be open to Britain wider and wider.”
