More Brazilian farm and animal products can be imported into the Chinese market through cooperation between the agriculture ministries and quality inspection departments of both countries, Yang Wanming was cited as saying by Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo on Tuesday.

Yang said the two sides will discuss how many meat processing plants could be approved to export to China when Brazil Agriculture Minister Tereza Cristina Dias visits China in May.

The new list of plants permitted to export to China could be announced when Brazil Vice President Hamilton Mourao visits China later the same month, according to Yang.

As many as 78 Brazilian meat processing plants could be added to the list, which has 64 plants currently, according to a person familiar with the matter, said the report.

Amid the China-US trade war, China has expanded its soybean imports from the South American country, which boasts vast land and a developed agricultural sector.

Brazil's meat exports to China are still expected to expand, although talks between China and the US are easing trade tensions, according to an analyst.
