Lithuania has already managed to enter the Chinese dairy market and now the representatives of other industries are looking to enter the largest market in the world. Preparations for this are already well under way for companies planning to export beef, grain and animal fodder.

“A visit from Chinese experts regarding beef and fodder is planned already for this year. It would be an important step in the negotiations to gain permits for Lithuanian companies to export to China,” says the Minister of Agriculture Virginija Baltraitienė. Negotiations on veterinary requirements and document coordination with relevant Chinese institutions began in 2015, with the necessary documents and surveys having been provided, Alfa.lt reported.

The Chinese experts will focus on whether the Lithuanian national food and veterinary control requirements correspond to standards expected in China, the effectiveness of the control system is also examined. Furthermore the preparation of companies interested in exporting to China will be evaluated.

The negotiations process is very complex and depends on many circumstances before it can conclude, but Lithuania is interested in ensuring that the process would be as smooth as possible. This is aided by favourable relations between the Lithuanian Ministry of Agriculture and relevant Chinese institutions.
