Argentina made its first export of chilled beef to China, days after a new health protocol entered into force which allows this product to enter China.

The Argentine Ministry of Agribusiness reported on Monday that the export was carried out on Saturday and consisted of chilled, vacuum packed rib eye cuts, which are considered to be high value cut within the Argentine industry.

"This represents a great opportunity for the Argentine industry and for trade between both countries," said Minister of Agribusiness Luis Miguel Etchevehere.

According to data from the Argentine government, trade between China and Argentina reached 16.28 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, which represents a year-on-year increase of 18.2 percent.

China is the second largest trading partner of Argentina and the largest destination country for Argentine agricultural products.
