According to AQSIQ, the three protocols signed between the two countries are the Protocol on Quarantine and Veterinary Sanitary Conditions for the Import of Deboned Beef from Argentina to China, the Protocol on Inspection, Quarantine and Sanitary Conditions for the Import and Export of Cow’s Milk and Dairy Products between Argentina and China for Human Consumption, and the Protocol on Quarantine Requirements for the Export of Barley from Argentina to China.

However, no information about corn was released. There was a message on the market that China had planned to import as much as eight million tons of corn from Argentina, which resulted in a sharp rise of four per cent in the US corn futures for a time. But both analysts and officials considered that it could take two years for the two countries to accomplish the negotiation on China’s corn import from Argentina.

The bilateral trade negotiations warmed up slightly after China lifted the six-month ban on the import of Argentine soybean oil in October.
