China Agriculture Report By CnAgri2018-06-08 10:07:27China Agriculture Report Print In 2017, China imported 450,000 tons of chicken products with a value of 1.029 billion US dollars. Judging from the source of imports, China’s imported chicken mainly comes from Brazil. In 2017, China imported 382,000 tons of chicken from Brazil, accounting for 84.80% of the total import volume; the second largest source country is Argentina which exported 53,000 tons of chicken to China, accounting for 11.75% of the total imports. Will China's chicken import pattern change in 2018?
Since February 27, 2018, China has terminated the punitive rates of anti-dumping and countervailing duties for U.S. white broilers. On May 18, the two sides reached an agreement and China will actively expand imports of US agricultural products, the market is generally expected that China will soon resume the import of white broilers products originating in the US. However, on May 29, the White House issued a statement that the US will impose a 25% tariff on $50 billion of Chinese goods. Whether China resumes the import of US white broiler products still needs to be determined based on the results of the next substantive negotiations between the two parties.
In addition, China has officially resumed the import of Thai frozen chicken meat in March, 2018, and will place an end to the anti-dumping investigation against Brazilian white broiler products on August, 18, and determine whether to impose anti-dumping duties. By then, a conclusion on the Sino-U.S. chicken trade should have been made.
The above factors affect China's chicken imports. BOABC predicts that China’s import pattern of white broiler products will change significantly, and the import volume will increase in 2018.
