Leaders of the House Ag Committee Remark on Final Deal to Allow US Beef into Chinese Market

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 15:20:03 CDT

Leaders of the House Ag Committee Remark on Final Deal to Allow US Beef into Chinese Market Following today’s announcement that the U.S. and China have finalized an agreement allowing for American beef exports, House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) and Livestock and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee Chairman David Rouzer (NC-07) made the below comments:


“As one of the world's largest importers of beef, China has long-been an area of great opportunity for the U.S. beef industry. Well today that ‘great opportunity’ becomes a one step closer to reality for cattle producers across the country, hopefully bringing an end to a 13-year drought on beef exports to China. America’s ranchers raise the best and highest quality beef in the world, and I applaud the administration for its work to move this agreement across the finish line,” said Chairman Conaway.



“Today’s announced agreement that U.S. beef producers will have access to China’s market, the world’s largest, is a major achievement. The opening of this market is estimated to be worth $2.6 billion for the U.S. beef industry, and I applaud the Trump administration in negotiating this great deal which will benefit our nation’s cattlemen, the agriculture community, and help grow our economy and create more jobs," said Subcommittee Chairman Rouzer.
