Argentina’s agriculture minister said on Saturday that China has approved three new strains of genetically modified soybeans and one new variety of GM corn for import, which should boost trade between the two countries.
Argentina’s Norberto Yauhar made the announcement after meeting with his Chinese counterpart Agriculture Minister Han Changfu in Beijing, according to a statement published on Argentina’s presidential website.
This is among the most important news we’ve had in recent times for foreign trade,” Yauhar was quoted as saying. “The Chinese minister just confirmed the approval of all the strains of corn and soybeans that were pending.”
