Craig Uden, president of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) issued a statement regarding the matter, saying: "NCBA commends the leadership of President Trump and our skilled negotiators who were able to restore US beef access to China, something that has been a top priority for NCBA for 13 years.

"NCBA worked closely with USDA throughout the entire process.

"In recent years, China has become one of the largest import markets for beef, and these terms are a reflection of China's trust in the safety and quality of US beef.

"We hope that by getting our foot in the door we can develop a long lasting and mutually beneficial relationship with China."
