In brief: Brazil suspends beef exports to China

* Brazil’s agriculture ministry has announced a suspension of beef exports to China after a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, also known as ‘mad cow disease’) was confirmed in the Amazonian state of Pará. An agriculture ministry statement said that “following official sanitary protocol, exports to China will be temporarily suspended” as of today (23 February), adding that discussions with the Chinese authorities will be “intensified” to achieve a “prompt re-establishment of trade”.

The Beijing authorities will then decide upon how long the suspension should last.
