Growth in years 10 to 14 will return to 2,420 tons and 4,840 tons from year 15. In the event of triggering, the safeguard duty would be equal to the safeguard duty that a CP-TPP country would pay if it triggered the cp-TPP protection measure.

But that figure is only a small fraction of the total growth in China`s beef imports over this period, from $2.6 billion to $4.9 billion.

Washington, DC — The United States will be able to nearly triple its annual duty-free beef exports to the European Union (EU) over the next seven years, under a new agreement signed today at the White House. “The European Parliament`s approval keeps this agreement on track for implementation in early 2020, which is great news for the U.S. beef industry and our customers in Europe,” said Dan Halstrom, president and CEO of the US Meat Export Federation.
