Beef Trade Expected to Improve With South Korea

US - The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade in South Korea expects beef trade with the U.S. to resume. On Friday, the Minister said that trade should get back to more than 80 percent of what it was before South Korea banned beef imports in 2003.

The resumption is expected to happen in two phases. The first phase would follow rules set by the international animal health agency (OIE) and the second phase would be based on efforts to overcome consumer resistance.

South Korea did reopen trade to boneless beef from cattle less than 30 months, but has temporarily put the ban back on after finding banned spinal material in a shipment.
