Call for Opening of Beef Market

28 April 2011

SOUTH KOREA - Chile has called on South Korea to speed up the opening of its beef market.

The plea for a freer market for the South American country was made during a visit by the Chileaqn farm minister.

South Korea currently bans beef imports from Chile, though a bilateral free trade agreement (FTA), Seoul's first free trade deal, went into effect in 2004, removing tariffs on a range of farm produce and manufactured goods, a report on Yonhap News says.

Minister of Agriculture Jose Antonio Galilea told Yonhap: "Market opening can benefit everyone because Chile can provide high quality beef at affordable prices," Jose Antonio Galilea said in an interview with Yonhap News Agency.
