National Meat Institute of Uruguay (INAC) recently issued a report
analyzing the impact of tariffs on the meat industry of the signing of a
free trade agreement between Uruguay and China. The most important
factor in meat exports to China is tariff. Uruguayan meat exporters are
expected to pay more than 150 million U.S. dollars in tariffs to China

is the world's most important meat importer, accounting for almost
one-third of global imports. In 2020, China's meat imports will exceed
28 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 30% of global imports. In
addition, the growth rate of China's meat imports is also very
prominent. From 2010 to 2020, the average annual growth rate of all
Chinese meat imports is 38%.
In the first eight months of this
year, Uruguay’s meat exports to China amounted to 935 million U.S.
dollars. Various indexes indicate that Uruguay's domestic beef
production has increased, and exports to China will also increase
accordingly. If the current export rate is maintained, Uzbekistan's
total meat exports to China may reach 1.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2021.
