China to Favor Domestic Pork Producers


According to a statement from the Ministry of Finance early in 2022, China will increase import duties on pork products. Tariffs will return to 12 percent on January 1st, up from the current 8 percent of value.  The intent is to encourage domestic production that is increasing. African swine fever is now more effectively controlled by higher levels of biosecurity and a marked shift  to larger production units with integration.

During October China imported 200,000 metric tons of pork, down 40 percent from October 2020. For the first ten months of 2021, total pork imports attained 3.34 million metric tons down eight percent from the corresponding period in 2020.
