China opens beef market to offer export hope to Wales


A UK-China deal which opens up beef markets for Welsh farmers for the first time in 23 years has been welcomed as an “exciting” opportunity.

It comes ahead of a two-day visit to Wales by Chinese vice premier Hu Chunhua.

The agreement to allow beef exports is estimated to be worth around £25m a year for Welsh meat producers.
