The initiative has received positive responses from the major meat exporters of Brazil, a major meat exporter to China, and the National Meat Association of Uruguay
All parties have promised to further strengthen the prevention and control of the source of the new crown virus on the basis of the previous strict prevention and control measures
Chen Wei, executive vice president and secretary-general of the China Meat Association, said: “Under the premise of open trade, overseas meat export companies strictly control the spread of the virus from the source, which will help ensure the safety of imported meat products and help to overcome them at an early date.
