Could US-China trade war benefit EU pig sector?

5th Apr 2018 / By Alistair Driver

The EU pig sector could benefit from the US-China trade war, according to AHDB Pork.

China announced retaliatory tariffs on various products from the US, including pork, this week, in response to Donald Trump's decision in March to introduce higher tariffs for imported US steel and aluminium.

China will impose an additional import tariff of 25% on all pork products from the US, although no implementation date has been set.
